Every Girl Should Have a Poem Written for Her (17)

J___
Poetry mistress
Word mother
Grey fedora
Tipped over
Flower side
One ear
Beneath long
Flower child
Hair colored
Red tinted
Golden tawny
Elegant arched
Eyebrow glittered
Long lashed
Gleaming eyes
Regal Pharaoh
Nose curling
Pink lips
Coy, joy
A laugh
Within that
Long, sweet
Throat of
Marble or
Perhaps porcelain
Sweet bird—
Trill laugh
Soft arms
Willow wisp
Bubbling words
Like breath
In and
Out from
Bubbling lungs
Springing forth
From swelling
Diaphragm and
Churning gut
Within willow
Wisp core
Bright breath
Write word
My mistress
Word mother.
