Lament of the Carefully Undressed

Cotton capris slide off legs
and stand up low on the wooden floor,
two perfectly crumpled empty columns,
waiting to be stepped into like a morning
in which she wakes alone,
no clothes thrown off like sighs
in small sleeping heaps with his.

    How lonely the solitary laundry slumps, searching for its reciprocate. Like separated kittens who grow up Independent, albeit, aloof.
