Hell Show Erotica

This will sound strange for an Episcopalian,
but I think in another life—
I was in Hell stripping.

Flaunting out of my skin, 
flirting by fire 
with my filet of breasts.

Gentlemen, this is my raw body, 
my exposed bones.
Look at this pinup of flesh! 

On occasion, my strip tease 
would just be me 
looming October naked, 
clutching opulence in my mouth.
