Below is one of two poetic pieces written in response to the above photograph which were exhibited, along with the image, during the Artwave Festival this past August and September.  The other poetic response will be published in the next day or so.

forbidden fruit

a ring, a finger
a stain upon my breast
a ruby-red, crystal kiss
a lure, a temptation
the blood of Christ
a benediction

fruit of the vine
teardrops & ambrosia
a melted dervish dream

a milky way, a whirl
a girl, an offering
a liquid areola
