Felixia's Poem #6 - Lady in Qipao

she stares out
eyes half closed
head tilted slightly up
elbow on her bared knee
of a pair of ivory legs

she shuts her eyes
as the smoke rose
from her cigarette
the ashes drop
on her qipao's thigh slit

i could almost see
way past her shut eyes
into her thoughts
as she drifts into her past
of unrecruited love

- Felixia Yeap -
