Dressing in the Dark

 i fish

 in the lingerie drawer

for the black stockings

 i know by their silken feel.

sirens drown in the river,

and I dress in the dark,

even though I do not have to

anymore.

  1. Wonderful verse. I actually did a lot of things in the dark when I couldn’t sleep. I fish in the draw for this and that, dressed warm to go downstairs and do a few things until I’m tired, or I stretched my swollen legs in the dark without wake up my hubby. You remind me of many things!
