My Husbands Old Nightshirt

Spider silk soft
Breath light
Fabric baring threads
Of caress and comfort
Colors not
But night and light
Black white none
Easy to have
Kept as sleep
In the heart
Nodding to waking
Shed to skin
At the dawning

*** not the most romantic of titles for a cubist love poem – smiles – a little something for the dVerse prompt

  1. Well, I like your cubism more than Gertruede Stein’s, I can say that much! I love the description of this well loved piece of clothing. I have worn certain loved t-shirts to near transparency before reluctantly parting with them. I still miss them.
