Poem - Confirmed in Dress

The poem “Confirmed in Dress” was inspired by a dream that involved wearing a beautiful dress ensemble, made that more perfect with beauty makeover.  The poem also admires those who seek to display their beauty in less dress, enduring the world with burlesque displays.

Confirmed in Dress

Clothes evoke chains of decency
propriety the world desires to see
a battle that’s surely lost
when spirit rises to pay the cost

the norm embraces decorum’s plea
to seek the blanket of propriety
others reject this notion to reveal
the individual not brought to heel

 they may choose to show the flesh
or present the gender felt in the breast
these lofty goals bend the rules
arousing passions that may confuse

even while the celebrants
those who face mistaken jeers
know their choice is surely blessed
with heart and mind confirmed in dress.
