Marisa Silva-Dunbar

Dandelion April

A goddess in a baby blue silk 
negligee, soft lighting skin a glow.
She knows how to have the perfect pout,
will lure you in with a knowing wink 
and cheeky smirk. Her smile will dazzle
like pink raspberry Religieuse.
She’s a sultry siren in the red light with her
rhinestone heart shaped sunnies. 
She’ll play you Bowie on her vintage 45—
style you like a 70’s Penthouse Pet
or one of Hef’s little bunnies.
She is all charm and sweetness—
a honeyed balm for those who are weary. 
Pay tribute to the cutie-pie goddess.
