One Morning

I watched her bathe and dress.
She didn't mind. We'd been together
Long enough for her to know
That I, like almost everyone who'd
Seen her since she was a teen,
Was captivated by her form,
The pedestal, and prison, too,
To which she, somehow, unlike
Others, couldn't wholly be confined.
