Moonlight clings
to a slip on a clothesline.
The light holds it like a dance partner
a hand around the waist
a knee nudging between knees.

The line sighs with brilliant expectation.

In the breeze
the lace hem
lifts
lifts
lifts,
reaching with hips
and subtle
invisible groin
towards
the shivering moon.
