I come upon it slowly, this wild lawn

before the forbidden idol I can’t help

but worship. It is the curtain to the window

that seams between her thighs, an untamed frieze

above her moist temple. This bookmark squeezes

within its covers, pointing out the single page

worth reading. Libidinous plumage, sacred geometry,

voluptuous constellation pointing due South

towards the only waves I desire to sail.
