The Uncircumsized



Folded.
Folded pleats of silken clothe,
Folded flap, away from moth.

The Uncircumsized

Tucked.
Tucked rows of wrinkled leather,
Tucked cap, away from weather.

The Uncircumsized

Fold upon fold, tuck upon tuck.
The fleshy fabric cascades down
to cover one's duck.
Crease upon crease, prune upon prune.

A comfort for its owner to clean
and to swoon.

Creased.
Creased crevices of gentle form
Creased, Creased, Folded, Tucked.







The innocence of an uncircumsized shawl collar
sweater.

...Disturbed. Disturbed and crying in my room, disturbed and broken in the hall.
Scared. Scared that you live two doors away, Scared of the things your mind conjures up....

So, when you read that to me in the hallway (sans pictures, I might add) I was rather disturbed. But now that I know you were talking about your sweater I am a little bit less...worried. But the images your poem brought up in my mind may never leave...gross...

Oh Lee, you are so random and very weird. I really wonder where you come up with this stuff. It is great for my enjoyment but so so strange!
