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

lampshades


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?
