Within resides in every mind/heart
The image of the Eternal Eve.
A delicate female, downcast eyes
Oval face, framed by a dark fringe
Classic pose of coyness and submission
Expected by the patriarchy.
A dark visage
An embroidered Kurta
For that ethic marker by the
Fashion industry.
And ---
An ample bust clad in a tempting orange
Popping out of a dark face in partial profile ---
The perfect Asian pairing
Of desire and dream!
An innocent visual!
Not free of its given context.
Deep down
Overloaded with implicit biases/prejudices
And other cultural signifiers/signified.
