memorial for a brilliant woman

must be getting geared up for NAPOMO

The Tawdry Affair

I was undone by you
grommets loosed,
gussets stretched,
petticoats tossed

on the chaise lounge
our lone set-piece
draped in drama
where salacious was
too easily replaced

by lugubrious dark,
heavy as a dental drape
to prevent loss of fertility.
your impression, left when
I was undone by you.

I love the fresh vocabulary here: grommets, lugubrious, the images for "undone."
