DRESSING ROOM WITHOUT CURTAINS
Young bodies mirrored to infinity.
Curves defined by underwire.
Clothes dangling price tags like jewelry.
As spotlights touch their hair with gold.
Knows this drill.
Reaching to a row of costumes,
Trying each, then discarding.
The pile of castoffs grows while
A voyeur in the doorway,
Dazzled by the bright hard image
Of girl on girl on girl.
