A Poet Of Average Ability - Poem by sharon wildey

I am wondering what it would be like
To spend a whole week naked
And whether my friends would come to tea with me
And whether they would be naked too

And whether during the week
My body would become beautiful again
And I would dare to look full on
at myself wet from the shower

And perhaps I would love again
Or dare to
If I were naked for a week
But carried on as if I had nothing to hide

And whether during the week
My family would like me more
Or less, maybe
If they could see me as I am
Naked and all
