In the bedroom mirror

curves swerve

from shoulder to ankle

arcing circle

fertility curling her.

In the rearview mirror

an undulating landscape

curves swerve

from hills to plain,

clouds bubbling

with the fertile promise of rain.

    Using the “curves swerve” line to describe her body is a badass metaphor…or analogy. Not sure which applies best
