A silk pink night gown

A silk pink night gown

hung on an old

big lots hanger.

There were holes around

the lace and some

parts were duller than others.

It used to be in that

old smoked up house

that you drove by once

with rotting flowers

on wallpaper

and rips exposing the

bare dry wall

like a bad cough.

She wore it while

sitting on the reclining chair

watching car by car

go by
