My Dress

covers my

body covers creases and

curves only you

know exist drapes

at my waist

falls to the

ground and sweeps

over my knees like a curtain

In this field am I light does

the sun make me glow

is this

how bulbs feel beneath


Hot and unsure

how to be turned off

but wanting it wanting

the moths to stop

circling stop

butting their heads

into this heat

that is not theirs?
