Is The Brown Phoenix sexy, erotic or porn?
It is ultimately in the eye of the beholder. To me, it's all of the above and none of the above. It's the closest I can come to describing the essence of zen in a relationship that is essentially, indescribably whole. As much as one can attempt to describe anything in words, the very use of words is exactly that: an attempt to fix the essence and symbolise the experience. The reader will be coloured by his or her own life and experience which may allow vicarious meaning as (s)he witnesses the love of these two people.
What would you like readers to see in it?
I want readers to see the absolute and complete wholesomeness of the love I feel for this woman. Her love of me was an instrument of learning that was like a branding iron on my heart. The sex between us was the modality, the currency we dealt in, but the value of the sex was multi-layered – complex - and it became a proverbial breaking dawn on a sleeping soul. My passion is for all things ‘her’ and the resulting relationship took on a life of its own, transcended even our temporal presence in the relationship. I really do love her beyond space and time, love her beyond all boundaries, beyond my own weaknesses. She is ultimately a circle back to myself. I know myself through her. This is the priceless gift she gives me ... and I love her all the more for it. Phoenix wrote with me, answered me - she wanted readers to see that great sex is as deeply non-physical as physical (laugh) no pun intended.
