The parts of a woman's body
that inflame my greatest ardour are not
those you might expect;
nor those of cliché.
The line of her jaw
or the small of her back,
or the soft flesh of her upper arm
peeking from a short sleeve,
Can send through me an electric charge
and make my heart pound loud;
The more seductive because
no attempt is made to hide them,
nor thought given to that they are displayed.
