Poem 2, 2022

Girl

Wrist cheek lips and that
pearl at rest a heaving chest above
the heart a head crowned
with black braid and down

the dress flows like blue ternate
a leg shows a quick shine
then thighs veined
a polished toe a sway

of the hips the arms
hint of perfume small
as a whisper she enters
the onlooker's dream.

—Razel Estrella
