I love to learn of you in metaphor
the fashionable wares of your nature
undressing my own, unmaking what is
beautiful in the world into beauty.
I had no idea about shoulders or
the inside of elbows, how they could have
their own ideals, or that I would want
to think of ways of praising them like gods.
