Abby S.

Dress

Still ordinary in her ripped jeans,
she strips off blue reminders of arduous life
and takes the gown in her two hands.
Feeling smooth silk flowing to the floor,
she sees its yearning for one night to live
and fills it with yearning to live for one night.
With two stiletto-clad feet, she is invincible.
