(Drafting again - ekphrasis)

----------------After John Collier, 1892

The Garden is dark

---------The Nude luminous

Breasts pubescent, slightly upturned

Head atilt
Hair aflame

Her hips suggest a motion
-----------The memory of sway

The Snake is coiling

Comprehension around
A perfectly formed leg

Her sex is encircled
(Dark shadowed)

Her arms play a variation

------------Upon The Grande Pose

She’s holds aloft a Creature
That hasn’t been named

Her chin rests upon the Serpent

She is smiling

Her eyes might be adoring

Her eyes might be closed
