Dress Code

you are still a mystery to me;
more so now that you are fully clothed
with these cryptographic polka dots
placing themselves throughout your sleeves
and I believe that the
laser line of the barcode scanner probe
may understand the symbolism of your belt
but it refuses to transmit the words;
rude quantities alone

you are still a mystery to me
and I wish this would be changed;
there are messages to reveal
and I believe in time
but the process of decoding
by the slow semaphores of these seven veils
is unbegun and we have
rude promises alone
