Magnolia, Georgia O'Keefe

Written by: Jeremy Martin

Long, feminine lines 
Milky white and yawning 
Acknowledge the morning, 
Queen of the waxy green 
The world lusts after you 
Craves your ghost perfume 
And you lounge, resigned, in the half light 
Tending to your tenuous beauty 
Yellow veins in the sun 
Heaving and sighing,  
In your supple envelope 
Leading to the tower of jewels 
Beckoning a vigil at your center
