harvest moon

how will I undress you?

under wraps, you are
smooth as the full moon

however deep your skin
you will shed it for me, in slivers
or great slabs
like a hollow tree

is there a pool
at your center, of bright water
can I reach down
deep enough

tonight, you hang in the sky
reflected

for now, know me, I am autumn

I leave no dry things
unturned

Paul--I toned down the "eros" in this poem, but then thought of you and dialed it up a bit--sometimes I need a reminder...thanks for stopping by!
