The Worry Dance (Draft 1)

The Worry Dance (Draft 1)

Don’t worry,
I loved you long before
you did your video

And when I look in your eyes
your virgin dance for me
is new and nude of pretense
just for my loving eyes
and the rest of me
why not

You know me enough
to enjoy my nude soul

And there are
private thoughts that let go
and envelope the dance of nude intimacy
