ecdysis

“...the action of shedding or casting off an integument...”
(Oxford Universal Dictionary)


integument

“...that with which anything is covered, enclosed, or clothed...”
(Oxford Universal Dictionary)


Suspended above the audience, I cut all devices of attachment —
the buttons, the belt loops, the eyes, the hooks, the zippers, et cetera—
from seventy-two pieces of my deceased mother’s clothing.
