You Wear Your Dress

You Wear Your Dress

A Poem by E.A. Archer
"

An exercise in words, trying to expose the creative process by leaving the "formula" by it's side (though not at all "part" of the poem)

You Wear Your Dress

 

You wear your dress, (item)

A pretty blue dress (descriptor)

And it reminds me often (function)

That I have more of less (paradox)

 

You brush your hair

Your lovely brown hair

And it reminds me often

That nothing is there

 

You use your lips

Your ruby red lips

And it reminds me often

Of those pleasant trips

 

You speak your mind

Your incredible mind

And it reminds me often

What once was mine


Now you guard your heart

Your precious little heart

And it reminds me often

Of where to start
