I teased you

I teased you into

dropping a curtsy

when you brought my tea.

Just for me.

You were a bit clumsy.

What did they teach you

at your girl’s school?

Perhaps you need training –

Fifty Shades of Earl Grey.

 

(Julian O’Dea)

 

 

 

dressing

her fluttering

white fingers

placing her

breasts like

mated doves

gently

into their

lacy red

dovecote

The Art of Manliness

Vettriano is an unusual artist. Not just because he is a Scotsman with an Italian surname, or even that he is a popular but not a critical success.

No, he is unusual because he paints masculine men and feminine women. A lot of his work has a retro look but he nevertheless clearly embraces the sexual polarity that emerges.

A stroke of genius

Strangely I can’t remember seeing this done in an advertisement before. Perhaps it is that French (Canadian) earthiness. If you want to advertise wedding dresses, put the girl on the bed.

downcast eyes

her downcast

eyes

lidded blue

for me,

her blushing

as I kiss the tips

of her fingers,

of her breasts,

and

the warm blood

in her lips

Cecile_Sauvage

 

She had a happy marriage and wrote poetry about topics like being a mother. She also had Olivier, who composed Quartet for the End of Time and other works.
