Poem: Mo

you are beautiful in your floral arrangement
paisley printed dress fuschia blown
patterned garden scarf, pale green, brilliant magenta

carefully placed on your body
like a funeral
or a balle masqué
a night out with the ladies,
or merely crossing Canal street to type,
nonetheless

you are beautiful quite in your floral arrangement

and your arms extenuate, lengthening, your beauty,
cotton white comfort that serves as a “drawing out” of your body
