Her Lady Slipper

Something human,
almost erotic, of flesh,
maybe Georgia had something right
in her paintings of flowers
Lady slipper illumined, shining
out in the wood, in the spring light
the flesh of her skin engorged, alive
the tiny laces, the booty of down
in the flesh of pink, of flesh
something drawing us
maybe Georgia was right
something erotic, sensuous
in the shape of the flowers
