Foxy lady

You do not seek
to see behind
my mask
of timid refinement

You do not see
how I slink
into the background

You cannot hear
the faint pant
of anxious breath
trapped in this cage

You wear me around
your neck
a fine catch
to show your friends

  1. Loved how this worked on more than one level. Very well done.

  2. Kimiko, I'm on you subscriber list now, too!

    This works in so many ways; not only does the woman define what she will NOT be, she points out how she is treated. A possession. Wrote on recently that's along these lines... Amy
