Little Black Dress

Before making light,
God cut
a piece
out of the charcoal night.

held it
in one hand
and waited.

When the sun
had grown
white hot,
God shook the 
dark form,

and beheld:
the little
black dress.

Then God 
looked about
for tan shoulders
on which to
perfectly drape it.

The rest
is herstory.
