Stripped- Aurora Phoenix

underdressed duress

I have stripped

languorous and playful

pirouetted inexpert

with bra-toss flourish

inside inviolable cocoon

of lover’s gaze

 

I have been stripped

icy delousing showered

quaking and shaking

silenced in shivering

submission, backlit

beneath baleful stares

 

I have sauntered

in my altogether

sipping coffee

of a lazy morn

desultorily conversant

secure in my abode

 

I have endured

humiliation de rigueur

squat and cough

correctional convention

senses and sensibilities

brusquely manacled

 

I am armored

today

in the smelted iron

outpouring

of all my

yesterdays

cloaked animalistic

in fervor

unbecoming
