THE UNDRESSING

Show starts at two
across the road
with wind and rain—

girls shedding
enflamed leaves
in a slow strip tease

of fire exposing
long white limbs
in a chorus line

of dancing nymphs
along the creek
all ready to go

skinny-dipping
come hell
or high water.

  1. I’ll never think of Autumn any other way but sexy. You have upset my decorum. Very neat metaphor.

    • Thanks. It’s good for our decorum, yours and mine, to be upset, to reassess what may be possible and appropriate. I have lived through so many fiery falls and naked winters across the road from my dancing nymphs that it is natural to anthropomorphize, to personify them—every dance a little different depending on cold, wind and rain… and me.
