I’m Reticent and I Know It

What is the difference between sexy and reticent?
That ability to let the world in on,
A secret.
In one,
Words, gestures, and scent,
A dip of ones hand,
I’m available and eager,
For a roll in the hay.
In the other,
Layers of aloof,
A formal nod and a sly smile,
Hide the heat,
Hot lava.
