The equity

Oh, blatant inequality between
a man and a woman! I could plainly glean
that from the little rendezvous we had
last night. I was intolerably bad
in how I behaved: a tongue-tied man,
unwilling to be content with less than
a pledge of paradise sealed by a kiss, 
together uptight and excited with
your reticence, the glitter of your rings,
the strange configuration of the wings
behind your back... The crapulence, the crumbs
in lonely bed I curse when morning comes.

All kind of equities is just a fraud:
I dream about you, you dream me not.

Those last two lines are enough to be a wonderful poem on their own, actually.

Men are lucky if they have a mother's moods to study to help them understand what a woman wants....a woman pretty much knows what a man wants. I enjoyed this Kurt! : )
