natural selection/five minutes from the front door

voluptuous, fecund, ripe/pluck one — mind the thorns — don’t get too close

the subtle message of an open fan / one fold after the other / its only adornment / the flicker of a dark lashed beauty / an exhalation of memory

the bruised blush of a bottom lip pouting & dropping to a curtsied ‘oh my’

lace loose & flush against her creamy skin: colette/anna k./mme. bovary/lady chatterley/women in love

sunbeams catch a silhouette at the upper window/lace curtains move in the spring breeze

aquamarine eyes with their yellow irises & deep lashes / coquette / fresh beauty

the family crest suspended over the linden lined lane

& acacia avenue welcomes you with its bowers of berries & blossoms nodding in the sun & shade

are you attracted to me?  i have put on my best just for you.

stop looking at me like that, you’ll make me blush with your unspoken thoughts
