Secret Club

i opened a door
and there were wigs
on sightless mannikins
and a mirror
and racks of lingerie
with pockets in it
for prostheses

and the woman said
"come in"
and i stepped through
into this new club
a secret club

for what is more
secret
than lingerie
with pockets in it?

so don't tell a soul

    1. Actually I picked that photo without much thought. But then, later, two thoughts struck me. One is your missing bits idea (post surgery). But the other was that the holes almost make the leaf look like a mask. And how all the wigs and prostheses are to help sick people feel more normal – a mask ğŸŽ­ of their symptoms.
