Addressing a dress can cause a pause
at any given address.
Understand that when a dress is addressed
caution and delicacy and intent
When desire to undress a dress
is disguised as a compliment
beware, be aware, the best that may come
is subtle or coquettish aggression --
though wrath of all sorts
will more likely need to be addressed
from a dress.
So all must learn to dance with a dress,
meaning both lead and follow
Listen and groove,
a light step and smile helps too.
Giving a hint, might get a wink
while simply respecting soars you
to heavenly heights --
perhaps to an address unknown.
Yes, addressing a dress, with honor,
may eventually change your address
to a place you can call home.
