Stripper

Poem By Mal Foster

Your existence re-invented
life renewed

laid out bare
for anyone new to see

that’s the order
its all in now

gently severed
from an excruciating past

given up
to these strobes of light

where I see you dancing
on attention’s stage

your body smashed
by middle-aged principles
