lace dress white and space left open for skin – skin like peeled ginger

just pink and blush and ingrown hairs and then

embroidered flowers erupting into the youth of her

off-kilter on a hanger in front of a yellow blazer made of lamb

it is strong bloom behind the dress

they lay against the closet door

in them she will look ridiculous

her skin so big

her nipples like bruise

through the crosshatching of the lace

she will be a morning-after stop sign

a gawk sign

bird take flight / take fancy / take her home the fast way

the collar up against her hair

she will be too much but

on the white of the closet door

in the straight shape of the hanger drawl

they are a logical conclusion

excluding reality
