Watch out.
She’s a devil,
that one.

Glad for her spine,
& her teeth,
even God hands fear her.

For she has arched her back
for a flower-woman
with sin dripping
from her fingers

-who taught her
how to laugh
like the stars.

I think I'd hate to meet the 'she' in this poem late at night in a dark alley. ._.

But this is beautiful as always. "Even God hands fear her..." dammit I wish I could write like that.

Okay, so um..... I swear I had something meaningful to say a second ago.

Anyway, it's amazing. It carries so much weight in just four sentences. I didn't even realize what it was about until the end. I've heard plenty of poems about this but, never quite so.... simple. Not in a bad way though, it's kind of the whole "short and sweet" thing. Except not sweet and it's just the perfect length.
