black spaghetti strap dress in hanger

I step out of the shower
wearing only a towel.
I take a sleek black dress from my closet,
bring it to my chin, and
imagine you behind me
to whisper in my ear
how beautiful I will look in it.
I’ll let the towel fall.
You’ll hold the dress at my ankles
so I can step in.
You’ll pull the straps over my shoulders,
zip me up tight,
place your hands on my hips, whisper,
“See, I was right.”
Then I’ll turn around,
stroke your goatee,
gaze longingly into your eyes, and
kiss your cheek.
It will be perfect.
