Discovering April

You seemed so flawless,
strong, self-taught
all pleated, creased and polished
but then you let your defense down
allowing me to notice --
slack-sagging ass cheeks
slapping your knees,
fwipfwap, fwipfwap,
 fwipfwapping ease
snap, snapping, snap,
damp sheets on line
this sudden breeze is fine, so fine
it's dandelion and necklace.
