Suitably Suited


Suitably Suited

I ache to be
A nude among nudes
To metaphorically undress
My perfectly clad disfigurements

To freely unbutton the willing
And to have the willing unbutton me
Is a dream that has no midnight canvas

My marred mannequin needs to stand bare
Exposing a defaced, disgraced view
More true than the attired me
That is socially subjugated
To a psychological, forced tailoring

Make no mistake
The prinking of scars
Is a mutual styling
Precisely designed
As a civilizing methodical
That castoff the potential
Of the blemished nude in leu
Of the stylish facade
Of the suitably suited
