i

they come
bright & cheerful
our eyes meet
sweeping glances
top to bottom
before they hurry on
with their hurried lives

some
come closer
and do things unmentionable
moving on
secretly pleased
with their assorted fantasies

only a few
are my master's delight
they like the garb
he has put upon
my naked body
the feel, the colors
the texture, the style
best in the shop, he claims
my pretensions admired
are calculated for price

i stand inconsequential
i don't matter
am just a mannequin
in the shop window of time




dee, this is for you
but, then what isn't
and for me too
may the force be with us
amen
