Pop-Art

 


Pop-Art

 

 

waiting in the quiet

key-fit noises turn the lock

open

closed

she drops her things

gently

on the table

 

a single light turns on

burns bright

fires up the colors in her hair

tumbling

as it drops

from underneath that woolly white

and oh-so big

sweatshirt

i do so love

and rolls out over her strong shoulders

bared

and framed

against our puppet making wall

 

unfastening that tricky hook

that cinches her brassier

she works it off so easily

impossible!

 

popping, buttons go

and jeans, rag-tired fall—

a little kick and they’re away

a shadow in the corner

 

elastic on her belly

slips, getting free

she slides the cotton down

to get it off--

and with a slip … a little tug,

and it’s away,

falling to her feet

a tiny spot of pop-art

on the carpet

 

oh honey, come to bed!
