They say the last rose
of summer
is low born -
a slow moving blossom
that bears a crooked stem.
Pluck it carefully,
tender color
to raise the dull dusk
of your dress;
flush it pale and perfect
along your thighs.

You move through the trees
like pelerines at the fair,
carrying it in your hand
the adieu of petals
already inscribed -
never thinking
to score the thorns
or to leave it behind
for the one
who called you sweetheart.

AAGH, you're amazing. Please take note. Love it. The imagery, the eroticism. Keep it up.


Ten points.
