Time Reveals You

What seduction is this,
what play on words,
with the body draped
in mystery, and how
naive to think
we can stand unscathed
before the mirror
and keep ourselves
from being seen,
to keep all things
in secrecy,
when piece by piece,
we’ll be disrobed
in the slow process
of unfastening,
until all our buttons
and all our strings
have been undone
and have been pulled
in all of our undoing,
and as all garments fall
about our feet
we’ll stand in this;
such unrepentant glory!
