The Shoe or Woman With Black Stockings

by Stuart Dischell


It is late,
my stockings are too tight
and the robe you gave me
for Christmas no longer fits.
Pierre, I am tired,
the studio is so cold
I shiver under my chemise.
This nudity, when will it stop.
It is late.
Please Pierre, let me go home.

 

Stuart Dischell’s poems are part of a sequence based on Bonnard's paintings of nudes. (Spring 1975)
