The Last Romantic

he spoke about her pussy 
in terms of art—
a dampness like Vermeer
a Monet water lily
from a certain angle
on the cheap four-poster bed
like Van Gogh’s severed ear

she sighed 
and lit a cigarette
said she didn’t care for art 
and kindly told him 
he’d have to pay extra
if he wanted to leave the lights on 
next time
