Sexing Plums

Dick Jones

Each one has,
in perfect symmetry,
paired buttocks, smooth,
undimpled, gently curved.
So, gender notwithstanding,
there’s something here
for the most exacting
student of anatomy.

Now look further;
check the contours
of those cheeks –
a face, half turned
away – the blush of
early passion jumped,
roseate and downy. Or
the rubicund shine
of passion unconsumed
in age.

And – the span of years
aside – if you listen
through the breeze,
the birdsong, you might hear
at the moment of release,
the plucked note’s pizzicato,
the juice unloosed,
the kiss of consummation.
