Afternoon Temptation


Afternoon Temptation

Sitting in close proximity

to her subject

This warm July afternoon

The seductive scent of

summer permeating the studio

Tempting lush rosy curves

rising into golden cleavage

Mouth watering in anticipation

of sucking the sweet sticky flesh

between her hungry lips

Juice dripping from her chin

On to the paint stained shirt

The Sweet Dream Peach

gave her all, both

subject and substance

No more to be painted

only remembered

in the poorly

rendered painting.
