Iris Feathered Eyelashes

Written by: Sandra Hudson

Long Iris feathers 
reach the brow line in dozens
Milked, brushed black, parted

Outlined, jasmine green
With a touch of bedroom brown
sensually cast

Upward, they lap slow
Increasing the allure, "blink"
"Wink"... hello handsome

Like a rich Uncle
Kissing both the upper cheeks
They live in numbers

the male species, fights
but poorly, rarely winning
"Venus" traps the guy
