|Venus de Milo with Drawers, 1936, Salvador Dali|
Spring fills the room,
taunts candle's flame
as I pull sexy from dresser drawer,
hold it up, scrutinize,
wonder if lace trimmed satin
is a relic, question
if resurrection's possible.
Martyr-like, slip it on,
as quickly, take it off,
that Venus of antiquity
youthful vision hastily
tucked away, folded.
Thankful he's easily pleased.

Oh, I'd like to say this was completely fiction. Thanks, Tess, for drawing this poem forth! The above image is this week challenge for The Mag #157
This is also linked with Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's Sunday Mini-Challenge 14 liners (it is quite different than a sonnet! ... but it does turn on the 9th line! :) Also linked with IGWRT's Open Link Monday.
I am also linking with Friday Flash 55, a "fiction" story in 55 words, no more, no less.
