Taking More Bread & Butter With It


by Geoff Stevens


Looks can be deceptive

peaches and cream complexion

sponge cake lips and glace cherry eyes

breasts shimmering like jelly

blancmange belly and thighs

a bowl full of calories

sprinkled with hundreds and thousands of lies

not a girl to trifle with.



Geoff Stevens is the editor of Purple Patch poetry magazine and a widely published poet and artist.
