Undetectable! (0.04)
That's what's known as a little less than perfect
Double zeroes the wanted goal
Blessed with reserved happiness—
the real deal in spades
Other stuff waiting in the wings—
          should things go downhill;
actually uphill to be more exact
Meanwhile softness still reigns—
          maybe the needle will help
Manufactured hardness, dry sensations—
          new version of manhood left to thrill the soul
Quiet prayer filled with gratitude—
          near double zeroes much better than one
Thank you, Lord, for your mercy
Gives a brother some hope.
