Portrait of a Lady

“Your thighs are apple trees
whose blossoms touch the sky . . . .

Your knees
are a southern breeze—or
a gust of snow . . . .

Ah yes—below
the knees, since the tune
drops that way, it is
one of those white summer days,
the tall grass of your ankles
flickers upon the shore . . . “.
