Oppenheim’s Cup and Saucer by Carol Ann Duffy


Oppenheim’s Cup and Saucer
 
She asked me to luncheon in fur. Far from
the loud laughter of men, our secret life stirred.
 
I remember her eyes, the slim rope of her spine.
This is your cup, she whispered, and this mine.
 
We drank the sweet hot liquid and talked dirty.
As she undressed me, her breasts were a mirror
 
and there were mirrors in the bed. She said Place
your legs around my neck, that's right. Yes.
