Naked isn't just
exposed or
undressed or
unclothed.

Naked isn't just
revealed or
threadbare or
bare-skinned.

Naked is a cautious
wading into a
gently lapping sea
of salt tingling
wounds.

Naked is waters welcome
covering,
wrapping about
what is
vulnerable and
loathed.

Naked is saying,
"I'm sorry."
Forgiveness is hearing,
"You're clothed."
