I think Lavinia

I think Lavinia is so pretty
because she is
with pointed Lucille ball
eyebrows and cheekbones
clear milky skin
lush eyelashes foresting
the most startling greens
inside her saucer plated irises
which remind me of a porcelain doll
I once cherished when I was very young

I think Lavinia’s pretty
because she is
but she is so fierce
I feel guilty
taking pleasure in it
she gives off an air
like she hopes her beauty
is not the first thing you notice
in fact, İ can imagine her yelling
it better fucking not be
