The Illustrated Lady

By the way

I like your tattoos.

The one on your tummy

That twists and twines

 

All around your back…

The quiet bird nestled on your breast.

Who can fault his silence?

A fool betrays his sweet spot…

 

I had wanted to write a poem

About transparent apples

At your behest

But that’s the funny thing

 

About you:

Wherever I start

I end up

Somewhere better.
