The Woman

Drop earrings, droopy breasts;
everyone invests in the woman.

Heels heightened, center folds;
everyone’s frightened of the woman.

Drill bit arms, collarbone bowl;
everyone farms and hoes the woman.

Mouth that’s missing, milk carton calves;
everyone’s dismissing the woman.

Slit of fine-grained slate, thighs that chafe;
everyone gestates in the woman.

Modeling clay, a man’s property;
everyone tries to splay the woman.

        Thank you. It’s strange because I love viewing art and then you run across something that grabs you and demands you try and do it justice. That’s what happened, and I fear I may have only done it partial justice, but perhaps with time….

      Thank you. The painting, well you can’t look away when you see it. The piece, I hope its the same. Maybe lingers a bit later. Hoping my muse brings me some lighthearted summer frolics soon, for all our sakes. 😉
