She Said Why

she said, why must we be half-naked
to convey power?
i said, i don't know.
she said, why
do we strip
ourselves of integrity, but still feel
the need to show
our flesh at our weakest?
no man
would so openly betray himself,
and yet,
we do.
we wear our vulnerability like a coat
of bare arms.
i shook my head,
and turned from the mirror.
