Veiled Pearls

They’re under avail, under a vale
and under a Vail; able and available in a veil
For they’re different and deferent

They aren’t oppressed or pressed
They aren’t conned, trolled or controlled
They aren’t bonded or bounded
Nor forced or fussed
to be under avail, under a vale
and under a Vail; able and available in a veil

It’s a made choice, a choice they made
in freedom, in a free Dom
In heaven’s haven

For They aren’t hidden maidens, they’re Eden maidens
they aren’t scarred or tarred pearls on hidden floors, they’re
scattered pearls on Eden floors

They’re the sisters
not deceased stars
nor the seized stars
They aren’t rear brides, they’re rare brides
covered, in this cover, to be discovered
under avail, under a vale
and under a Vail; able and available in a veil
different and deferent
