Deception, perception
A broken glass
A ruptured rib and rite
Spared
For Eve
Basking nude in sun honey
Where serpents and apples tempt
Into or out of
Paradise?
A thermometer of time
Hangs to torment
Third eye vision
Blocked
Linear
Rigid myth
Bright, innocent,
elegant face
For fate to fondle
Fair and forgiving
She takes the ride
For art, religion and history’s sake
Possibly for Pete’s
Predominately
Luscious lust
of and for
Holy Ghost’s
Spirit

(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)
