Pornography

By Billy Collins

In this sentimental painting of rustic life,
a rosy-cheeked fellow
in a broad hat and ballooning green pants

is twirling a peasant girl in a red frock
while a boy is playing a squeeze-box
near a turned-over barrel

upon which rest a knife, a jug, and small drinking glass.
Two men in rough jackets
are playing cards at a wooden table.

And in the background a woman in a bonnet
stands behind a half-open Dutch door
talking to a merchant or a beggar who is leaning on a cane.
