I am naked all day to match my mood —
The French must have a word meaning, “almost
euphorically horny.” It’s why I’m nude
writing this to you now, little sad ghost
that no one wants. Come over, I want you.
We can preen, paint our nails, slurp tea, snuggle
or do that one thing that the living do
to feel better. That one obscene, shameful,
sublimely fun act that you have not done
in ages. We will be naked chums, bosom
pals, wild playmates. Little sad ghost, lover,
delight is contagious, and so is fun.
Life is too short for sorrow and boredom.
Come here. Get undressed. I miss your laughter.
