Pig's Ear


Lily of the Nile
Virtuous and pure
In death and in love
rebirth and resurrection
Chaste with white spathe
and long phallic sword
The epitome of
lust and sexuality
Paradoxical beauty
The quintessential
Venomous virgin

  4. Hi Rachel, Yes it is a flower with many names. I chose the name I thought was the least romantic for the title for my short verse. I also know it as the Arum Lily. Thank you for your comments.
