“Good Girl “

a Rondeau


“Innocence Carrying The Urn of Propriety Safely Across the Abyss of Indiscretion”*

Her innocence is a mask very believing.

However, looks can be deceiving.

Her charming smile, her voice seemingly innocent

 conceals thoughts of erotic amusements

that are explicit and worldly beyond conceiving.

And no one knows about the receiving

of sexual pleasure, the passionate screaming

that comes from a core harboring excitement.

She’s such a good girl.

Unassuming in dress and always listening,

she judges the crowd and gages their feelings.

How many minds are closed with embarrassment

just because of the refusal to experiment?

Yet no one knows she’s been climaxing.

She’s such a good girl.
