|Monhegan’s Schoolteacher, 2004 by Jamie Wyeth|
Cool night air from the island
softly blew through her window
wrapping itself around the mentor’s
exposed, sensitive skin, freeing her.
Moonlight danced between her book
to her inviting, unconcealed body.
She always felt so free and open
as she undressed, stripping away
obligations, of teaching, tight clothing.
Knowing the young men from town
came to watch her unveiling left
her feeling vulnerable and exotic.
