She dresses and undresses
She is done and undone.
She is stubby legged and pot bellied.
She is no thoroughbred.
Breasts downturned she is known
His familiar She circles
She circles herself circles the floor
He dresses and undresses her promise
Her insecurity comforts
and is home to his selfishness
He dresses and undresses her dignity
leaves it laying in heap
beside bed post
There are no secrets between them
She takes what is given
And for the moment he is grateful
