Long arms, long legs — stuffed into a pair of long and skinny split-crotch black lace leotards
and then covered by a dress made of green sheer that only could disguise the silhouette beneath by intermittent raised darker green flocked sunflowers.
She floated in her floating dress dancing through the party not stopping to meet anyone
marveling only at her own sense of freedom
knowing that she was nearly out in public naked
showing off her new found skinny freedom.
The green sheer dress with the flocked green sunflowers
hangs in the older woman’s closet waiting for the black lace split-crotch leotards to want to dance again.
The woman waits for elongated bones missing some of the flesh they have acquired since that first time dancing in the floating dress.
