Exceptional beauty

I will not be exceptional in any way that many people notice.

My beauty is like that of many other beauties, unique but local, seen by just a handful, and really more like prettiness than gorgeousness, truth be told.

The intrigues of my body are like those of many other bodies; the suppleness and scent are singularly mine, so more than rare, and yet really not unusual.

The electricity that arcs between my fingers and your flesh is real, but how far can it travel? It can’t be felt but face-to-face. The rest is memory or imagination.

My radiance is small, itself, and yet it reaches into distant corners of a very large world.
