Can you picture an oyster

and remain oblivious to

the obvious while waiting

for the swirl of metal tinged

flesh zinc and candlelight

spilling over fresh linen

a thick round handled knife

a white hand on a white throat

a pink tongue on a grey mantle

a gelatinous male then

female heart irritable but

pure as a dimpled pearl worn

in the style of Bernini?
