Vintage Pin Up: 1920’s Flapper

1920flapper

Jules Paige wrote a beautiful verse to go with this piece:

he gifted her lace
she comfortably wore
as briefly as his…

under there, under where they
swore like sailors and laughed

in the lengthening
daze of summer they created
fire and heat

.

Lovely– thanks, Jules.

The photo also inspired a wonderful verse by Jen at Blog It or Lose It:

what did he see?
what made his eyes
spark so fiercely?
what put the faint smile
in the corner of his mouth?
and was that
brief look . . .

. . . lust . . .

. . . for me?

did someone
finally
find something
desirable . . .

. . . in me?

one admiring glance . . .
unexpected . . .
brief as light’s journey
through lace . . .

. . . but so desperately needed

the memory
brings me to my mirror
to find what he saw
and . . . perhaps . . .
savor
the what-ifs . . .

my flesh
. . . as if he were here . . .
responds to his touch . . .
. . . my touch . . .

and . . .
. . . yes . . .
. . . I see it too . . .

there’s
nothing
broken
about me

one look
and I am desirable
again
Jen, it’s amazing — thank you.
