My Naked Lady Framed

my naked lady framed
in twilight is an accident
whose niceness betters easily the intent
of genius—
                        painting wholly feels ashamed
before this music,and poetry cannot
go near because perfectly fearful.
meanwhile these speak her wonderful
But i(having in my arms caught
the picture)hurry it slowly
to my mouth,taste the accurate demure
              rhythm of
laziness.  Eat the price
of an imaginable gesture
exact warm unholy
