Diaphanous Folds

in my mother’s bedroom

i remember opening drawers

and finding sheer nightgowns

small that fit my frame

i tried them on and paraded around

for her and for my dad

in sherbert colors

orange pink and lemon

many layered and airy

like the gown i wear now

mine cream

and worn only for one person

him

who is not here
