THE UNDRESSING: ANTICIPATION

 

20151213-IMG_0837

 

On the weather map,
a week of storms
four days out

turned down
to a heavy mist
to quell the flames

before the downpour,
wind and rain—
a tame disrobing

before a shower
of leaves that leave
the road between

barbed wire fences
full to the hubcaps
with bedclothes.

 

THE UNDRESSING

 

20151213-IMG_0833

 

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.
