Oolitic Venus of Kingston Poem by sasha yarlexolnikov


my stillborn romance despite
my partiality for the fertile contour
that woman, or girl, boasting
an ocher but without the bloodstain
her against the prolific Portmore
mountains that draw the horizon
blessing the Hellshire beach
the landscape

her essential form
breaking up the crowd
the curves setting themselves against it
yet walking straightway
into it
indefinitely belonging to it

my stillborn romance
pulling away from her thighs
at the decisive moment
when the aristocracy of beauty
is stripped down to the
primitive sweetness of pleasure

and yet, I tonight,
a date with the elitism of the slim waist
the narrow thighs, propped against
delicate and lengthy legs
slippery as dry ice
the heat of sexual aversion
is a fitting pick for one like me
with a stillborn romance
one fated to solitude
even within the crowd

refusing offspring
an intellectual mummy
tonight taking in
the fertility around me
holding her barren waist
