Don't despair, lovelorn: Slate is today offering an anthology of sex poetry, presumably as a salve to those of us who won't be getting any. We'll leave it to you to read the actual verse, but we'd like to highlight three curious facts. First, that Robert Pinsky, the Webmag's poetry editor and a former U.S. poet laureate, seems even more obsessed with who is gay than Rosie O'Donnell is; second, that Emily Dickinson's "If You Were Coming in the Fall" is not a double entendre; and, third, that Robert Frost's "Putting in the Seed" is. Class dismissed.
