Golden Girl

‘Golden Girl’

Adorn

with baubles

of hammered gold.

Wear a shimmering gilded column

to veil your frame.

Or,

wear nothing

but naked curves

drenched in liquid gold.

Dance

in fields of flaxen wheat.

Bathe in light.

Go ahead —

glow,

you thousand-watt bulb

of magic & aureate sun.
