Carol Paine

  • How shocking the stocking that matches the pink / Of the lip, or the tip of the nose, or the rose! / How vile on the nylon the blue shadows blink! / How rank on the ankle the weed green grows! / How sickly the thickly-set calf in it tint / Of mauve or of clover; its strawberry mesh! / What on earth could give birth to the horrible hint / That has made us afraid of the shade of the flesh?
