Comfort by Henry Ascencio whose wonderful work can be seen here

He can remove garments,
pare away
each delicate raiment
with clumsy thumbs.
Strip,
rip peel from pith,
reveal citrine flesh,
fresh,
beneath zest.

Lay skin bare
on pelt-strewn floor,
eye-linger thighs,
analyse
mellifluous curves,
let his gaze graze
each nookcrookcranny,

but he cannot see
the woman you saw,
her naked affirmation –
yours alone,
for she leaves
when he turns
his key in the door.
