By
A weathered white dress, wrenched from a safe cocoon
Hung, glistening, on the wall.
The vibrant ivory echoes his mockery.

The tear in the seam
The tear in our delusion
Nights when he never came home
He laughs
A sick show of gloomy bliss
and soothing distress.
A fabric of faded fear.
He’s home

In all the many grades of white and shades of grey, your poem is a burst of bright blue, flowering in the night. Please, let it bloom.
