Alright Aphrodite

By

alright aphrodite
armour of mother of pearl
light prisms beneath my skin
a gleaming target
alright aphrodite
tears are an aphrodisiac
sensuality uncovered
in my 300 thread count sheets
alright aphrodite
marble arms shatter
against the swaying of statuesque hips
honeyed skin so sweet
alright aphrodite
if the birth of Venus could be captured
all the world’s beauty
held in one set of hands.
