Mannequin Love

Wash away my off-the-rack day

and soap me down

with your cleanly woven self.


Stitch your breathing along the seams of my throat,

then finish straightjacketing my heart;

alter my standard-issue rhythm along your couture lines.


Button up my soul in yours.


Quilt my pattern with your tailored hands and

safety-pin a zipper into my fabric and I will open 


and I will fuse my silk around your love-fur
