Ready to Wear Red




Dim memories
of a knock down dead
satin red dress
fitted with curvy bodice,
and size sleek waist. No

self consciousness
in the wearing. It was part
of me. I’m thankful

for the memory
of me in a red dress.
I must have been twelve.

Nice, Judy! Everyone should have such a memory of wearing a RED dress so unselfconsciously! This makes me smile.

I love this Judy. The tone of it is perfect and the last line just made me smile and smile. Yes the red dress from age 12!!

Ooooo...and I was picturing femme fatale! Totally unprepared for the last line. I love surprises. Fantastic!
