The Art of Wearing Earrings and Fondling Them (Which You Master)

When you part your hair sideways
with a gallant swing of your arms –
enough to knock down a knight at guard –
your golden earrings jingle and twinkle
in the dimly-lit room.

The floral patterns on your dress
make a perfect garden
for our love to bloom.

Oh, trust me on this, sweet one:
I have mastered the art of gardening.
