Thigh
With honesty of home made butter,
paddle-churned cream (eshta in Arabic,
ecstasy foaming to the brim), a woman
river-bathes, sheet of oil-black hair breaking
in rapids, minimize lemon scintillating
olive dermis freed from tree-stumped chador, skirts
inside skirts, peal of her bell-body rung
muffled in Iran heat—a splash of white.
The rhythm of pumice scraping her feet,
sandbar opposed to hot present, frothy cape
a bee-bubbled hive, honeyed hint curling
to her naked knees, thick obvious lather.
At a Tehran bazaar never-ending gold-stores
may well by no means go back me at any place pure.
