What suits a nudist

What suits a nudist?

Warm air and obscure sun.

Absence of thorns, mosquitos,

prurient minds.

Unpredatory companions.

Volleyball.

Best: privacy,

when surface to surface

seams self to Time.

Wear it well.

  1. Sorry about this, but it is obvious that a nudist is suited by the same tailor who made the Emperor's New Clothes!
    Now we are over that, I liked the idea of 'surface to surface seams self to time'.

  2. "Sorry about this, but it is obvious that a nudist is suited by the same tailor who made the Emperor's New Clothes!" Well, sure, Stafford, that's where the metaphor was born ... But thanks for noticing ... now I'm working on "fraying seems..."
