ALL DRESSED UP
by Gena Williams
after Sharon McCullough’s All Dressed Up
I see you standing there,
All dressed up.
Tall and statuesque,
Your self-control amazing.
Your thoughts a mystery,
But your composure undeniable.
A woman to be seen and never heard.
Many a man would love to have
A woman like you.
Did you choose this life of silence,
Of paralysis and steel?
Do thoughts of freedom run through
That pretty little head?
If you could, would you jump down
And run far away?
At night, when no one’s looking,
Do you dance?
