Poem: New Clothes

I/K of course.  This is a different version of my 21st Napowrimo poem.

New Clothes

His hand slid
across the smooth fabric of her sleeve,
soft cotton,
a cascade of red and white blossoms on blue,
an expensive summer kosode.

He traced the blossoms’ dance
across her shoulders,
drawing one careful, claw-tipped finger
along the design.

Bending close,
he brushed his lips across her neck,
a white ear tweaking
as it brushed a stray black hair
as his finger followed the bright fabric
to where the collar met her skin..

The  hand traced the pattern across her breast,
as the blossoms danced,
down to her waist
and around her hip.

She sighed,
resting her head against his shoulder.
“So do you like it?” she asked.

“Hmm,” he replied,
“Enough to take it off you.”

Lifting her head up
to catch his amber eyes,
she smiled.
