Trapped

don't undress my love
you might find a mannequin:
don't undress the mannequin
you might find
my love.

That is NOT the entire poem! Full text from my personal copy of 1977's Love is a Dog From (with spacing intact) : don't undress my love you might find a mannequin; don't undress the mannequin you might find my love. she's long ago forgotten me. she's trying on a new hat and looks more the coquette than ever. she is a child and a mannequin and death. I can't hate that. she didn't do anything unusual. I only wanted her to.
well explained indeed trapped like it
the title best explains this poem
