by Sara Matson 

fighting salacious
space babes +
fearless operators
(personal willing material)
wrapped in metaphor

our geode playwright
carved fetish into
consciousness //

the beginning was
monsters – steep
episodic lilies
with trusting fragility
( an obsession jinx ! )
while a beautiful
palate coos into breasts +
cosmetic opinion

tulips responsible
for profound

caused a fervor of thigh-
high years stretched
across the tarot deck
like webbed fingers
against the light of day
