BftP: choker of pearls.

| Wednesday, October 28, 2009
Oh hai, old poem.

***

Choker of pearls
white, round, perfect
as she is
lips scarlet and dress
flows past hips and ivory legs

choker of pearls
mouth of pearls
hair of mahogany
eyes of emerald
lips of ruby-amethyst
tongue of air.

She is the loveliest ornament
castrated half-man
of quiet breath and downcast eyes
delicate servant to
superiority and strength
lies of the snake
wrung out of her mind
with a wring of her wrist
long ago.

She is placed
prized ivory and diamond
chess piece of a revered set
admired, beheld
frozen beneath glass.
