Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

Velvet Man-Trap

I could talk in riddles,
see if you get my jokes.
Chat my savant to your idiot
and smoke up all the dope.
Tiptoe around intentions
instead of jacking the vein.
View from many cross-sections
a pose you can't maintain.
My question is this,
how do I make you nervous?
You're the one who called to me,
asked for me,
arranged for me,
and this.
You've planted a flower with claws.
Luring scent
colored velvet petals
but sharp;
born to suck
and infect your heart.
