The Making of Gynoid

the arcane ellipse
i take to place
this kiss on your
Manray lips
egyptian veils over
cotton slips
revealing Dali thighs
and Waterhouse hips
heaving under van
Gogh skies.
you let me in
to your
kashmir skin
and quantum
Giger core.

I enjoyed how arcane moved to quantum, and every reference/image in between led smoothly to  the next. It was like walking into a small room, the wall plastered with photos and paintings.

This is beautifully subversive.  Every line spoke to me, even though it is something quite outside of my experience.  That is a talent I envy.  

Flawless, I say.

It does read very nice. Especially the rythem of the first stanza, for me though the second makes the poem end quite abruptly: perhaps ithe second could be longer to compliment the feel of the first> i want more!

I thought that I had already read and critiqued this, but it is marvelous anyway.  L8-11, very creative and descriptive--the whole poem for that matter.  Nice work.
