SHE HOLDS CAMELLIAS IN HER PALMS

She holds camellias in her palms,
a couple of decorations
to counter her porcelain embalm.

She sits, cherub-like, in the bookshelves arms
lifting a fey camellia-wielding-palm.
Her pallid color is a lazy charm.

She has all the power
to disarm.
Clichéd, Caucasian geisha
from the thrift shop farm,
she holds my backyard in her palm.
She holds my coral camellia in her palm.
