Kristin Garth

Christian of Troy

Bikinied battalion, Miami Beach, 
his mythic visage, the blondes beg, beseech. To sword
(his scalpel) sirens submit.  Beauty bleached,
Botoxed, skin deep commit.  For lipo lord,
cornflower eyes, open Gucci wallets, spread
Pilates thighs.  Suave surgeon sovereign, 
their plastic prince, Da Vinci beauties bled,
by flesh convinced.  Vampiric charm, red stains
on scrubs; females are easy to open,
impossible to love.   Abandoned child
of rape, forlorn for father’s eyes, slick grin.
All women porn or patient, cut, defiled. 
OR, sedated, or on silk sheets, black,
he only trusts a woman on her back
