day 29: lilies

30/30

Lilies

*

The lilies on the table

take their skirts off

and show their bodies –

*

one fragile purple sheath, another

They dance the seven veils

until on Sunday morning

*

I am sitting alone at the dining room table

with half a dozen bare women,

*

only the wrinkled, pink cocoon

of their skin left for looking.

*
