Erasing Edna St. Vincent Millay’s The Plaid Dress

Strong sun, bleach
this dress, violent plaid,
the yellow stripe,
the flashy green,
the recurring checker,
the serious breach of taste.

I fear, this garment–
strip it off!
Send me homeward eased and bare.

The hair,
lining the subtle(?) gown
is not seen,
but it is there.
