A Clear Image Is Not Available
I will decide this one is different.
I will say the teeth, this time,
are bared in ecstasy.
I will glory in the respectable bed,
the clean white sheets,
Let the exhausted ghosts rest.
The source of light, I say, is the sex--
is soul upon soul--
is innocent flesh, innocently held
in a firm dark box of rapture,
This was written in response to the surprise ekphrastic challenge on sex and art.
