The Sinfully Nude and the Blissfully Fooled

The Sinfully Nude and the Blissfully Fooled

A Poem by Wesley Dingler

  I.

To be sinfully nude,

And beautiful, and comfortable--whether or not anyone sees;

To be sinfully nude, (to be shamelessly crude)

Even if the upstanding and the prudish consider it obscene;

 

  II.

To be sinfully nude,

Even if the prudes look down on it (as obscene or obscure);

To be sinfully nude, (to be aimlessly lewd)

Even as it's deemed as profane by the modest or insecure;

 

  ---

And, from another view,

The prudes are inflamed as a result of denying their own urges;

And, from another view (as liberal fires ensue),

It adds to the flame when they know they can't discourage it;

  ---

 

  III.

But, to be blissfully fooled,

To have nothing for comfort--only a whim and a dogmatic view;

But, to be blissfully fooled,

To be as a wary foreigner in one's own body, wondering, What to

do?

 

  IV.

But, to be blissfully fooled,

To feel--instead of beautiful--sinfully nude;

But, to be blissfully fooled,

It would negate what I know, what I feel, and see as the truth.
