Poem - Birthday Suit

The poem “Birthday Suit” was inspired by the involvement of friends in burlesque based entertainment. I considered how revealing writing can be compared to these celebrated events.


Birthday Suit

Excuse the nudity some deplore
disclosed in words as they explore
so much more than clothes removed
the breadth of skin then exposed

just a glimpse when compared
to the flow of note’s discharge
dropped on the page in a stream
with souls undressed as result

secrets told without regard
in the buff by outcome
the inner self instead of flesh
disrobing more with every tell

in the end the truth is told
nakedness beyond the fold
don’t look away lest one miss
a birthday suit by writ’s admit.
