The Reveal




photo by Elene Usdin



Filtered light
from a nondescript morning
reflected an image
joyfully satisfying
mirrored
multiplied
lithe stocking draped legs
twisted this way
and back round
a satisfied  smile repeated inwards
the freshly ironed
 new dress
clinched in
a waist revealed
only lately
a body
delightfully carpet sore
from ecstatically amorous gripping
the old lover returned
from the other side of the bed
the new ardor
an unexpected prize
sprung on her
with relish and enchantment  
all goals reached
gladly she packed
clothes now too big
in old cardboard suitcases
bound for goodwill.
