Naked in different ways -
when all is stripped,
stolen, given away;
claimed by time
and the march of souls. 
Naked, when the smile
is no longer a disguise
and the barren tear offers
no sheeny, shiny, shelter
in the thirsty desert.
Naked, skinless,
muscles merely shadow
and a memory of strength.
Ezekiel’s miracle
is a long time coming,
while the dry-boned valley
anticipates  resurrection.

Stronger and stronger yet!

I thought you couldn't get any stronger than your last piece but I was wrong!
