Standard

the rose” written 2-19-98 by Elise Stein

erotic, deep red silk
soft, smooth like velvet,
rich,
intoxicating scent
tantalizing
seductive…yet so pure
shapely, curvy
swelling together
climaxing at the scarlet bud
beneath the cup of the sensuous body
lies the thick stem
speckled with erect thorns
hungering for a spot of blood
stretching down, down, reaching
to meet the soft pure earth
where it plants itself
deep
