Lily Davies' Lover

Stentorian alabaster crystal-clear

speak like a boardroom speak

yet when he, when he un-

drapes into his, into his

beloved's name till it

comes out for all to

hear...ear the 

warmth o-

f a blush

on his

eve-

r

so lightly in-drawn voice like the smell

of the sea when it stops on the pore of an ore...
