INNOCENCE

your voice is
Siren-soaked
in baby oil

eyes
always selfied
slightly
out of
line
(what is it
about symmetry
that doesn’t
really
suit you?)

but powerful
so powerful
zoom lens eyes
that a Gorgon would covet

turning first
to marble, to
talcum thereafter

would have
died for (every snake
expiring in
poor Medusa’s hair)
