The Natural Word

from my (hopefully) forthcoming collection a staff of asklepios:

The Natural Word

Frosted orange eyeshadow
with copper underwing,
tonight perhaps?
Fritillaries of maiden hair,
the very latest thing.
Golden brown hairstreak
with ringlets shower down.
Large blue eyes lined smokey.
Lips luscious, peach blossom blush.
Buff arches in high heels.
Everything so right,
she uses the world’s vocabulary
to bend its grammar rules.
Go downy with her,
wary of thorns.
