Poem #294

Trust is stripping down
to underwear
and letting a friend
record your vital stats
and take pictures
of you back, front, and side
Never mind that you'll change
never mind that you'll be
less and less
in the weeks ahead
It's now that the phone sees
that your friend sees
the solace lying
in her willingness to strip down too
and let you see what
she's been carrying around.

Jill Kelly October 2015
