Fall Fashion: All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

Barz Earrings, $55, Lunaversoul, lunaversoul.com; Emilie Black Jacquard Tuxedo, $1,800, Gustavo Apiti Couture, gustavoapiti.com


This day is like all other days,

this morning like all other mornings:

still-aired and stale

and nowhere to go but here —

So she slips on her gloves and straightens

her suit, takes a breath

and greets the wide

hazy day:

its lazy river and burnt grass,

its yawning trees,

its wet sand.

She emerges somewhere between it all,

pink-lipped and performing,

on her way to some afternoon ball —

she alone in attendance —

to celebrate the freedom in nowhereness,

the beauty in nothingness,

and that landscape,

wide and empty,

that embraces her turns

with applause.
