Clam-Shell Calcium (clam)

you wore a shawl over your lower parts
even being otherwise naked
or nude, otherwise
except for that damned shawl
always covering
what I knew to be a very valuable pearl
that you kept between your legs
and this pearl was rumored to be the size
of a small marble
and perfectly round
held still by your labial folds
with opaque oily swoops and rainbows
defying the pretentiousness of other pearls
by being as spectacular as its setting
which, of course, are your labial folds

Electricity has made you more of a saint. I fainted when they tainted the paint!
