HOLEY SHIRT

To be in love with a
Shirt is to doom it to
Death because fabric
Only stretches so far as
Its seams

When filling a shirt with
Love to the brim it will not and
Can not hold on to itself let alone all the
Feeling that seeps from one
Stitch to the next as it tears and it
Breaks the Love then escapes
And all you see is a Holey shirt that
You loved until
It burst

To be in love with a
Shirt is to doom it to
Death and a shirt can
Only stretch
So far as it’s made from
One seam to the next

Argyle socks, wove from strands of spider's silk
the color of mist, milky ivory and the center of my pupils.
A checkerboard pattern
on my argyle socks.
My toes are the peices.
Two pinky toe pawns
nestled in the knitted fibers.
I balance a wadded ball of yarn,
on the tip of my toe.
Like a seal balances a ball on
his snout.
My kitten is perched on the dusty
windowsill.
With malachite eyes he stares
at the yarn.
My argyle sock kicks it towards him.
He pounces on the unsuspecting victim.
The woolen orb unwinds, soon the kitten
creeps out of the heap of string and plays with
the pinky pawn toe. In my argyle sock.

Housecoat

It's old - I should throw it away.

It's raggedity - I should throw it away.

It's torn - I should throw it away.

It's faded - I should throw it away.

It has holes - I should throw it away.

Why don't you throw it away?

I'm wearing it.

Simple White Dress

Ah, give me a summer frock to don on sun-filled days.
Make it of lightest white cotton, and trimmed in sweet eyelet.
Graze my knees with a delicate ruffle, and a let play the gentle flounce about my hips.
With a sweetheart neckline may the bodice hug my form like a carefree lover.
Give me the ease to frolick admist the greenery of the season,
play to my senses of delight-amongst the wildflowers
all while in my simple white dress.

I wanted to add a post but since this is my first time on the site, can't figure out quite how to do it. do I just start writing? If so:

Three weeks after
a ladder fell on my right leg
three bones break and
the foot turned ninety degrees

My favorite piece of clothing
is anything I can slip over my head
without falling off the toilet seat
or pants wide enough for
the cast wrapping to slip through.

So I wear the same four outfits
over and over, threads already unraveling
like the normalcy of everyday life.

The Comfy Ones

My feet hate the cheap kind
They cause muscles to tense
That is why you are quite a find
I am writing this poem, hence.

Others have straps that dig
While yours are gentle and wide
with you I can do a jig
My feet no longer have to hide.

The arch support, it is amazing
You are tailor made
Other sandals cannot help gazing
Do you know how many soccer games you have played?

Every outfit I wear
you match so perfectly
You are from heaven, I swear
For my foot problems you are the key

Thanks for putting in 100 percent
Thanks for being there for the long run
The money I paid was well spent
Flip flops, you are the only one.

MY NIPPLE RING

My nipple ring
left her wanting
My nipple ring
left me needing

My nipple ring
made her sing
My nipple ring
made me king

My nipple ring
oh cha-ching
My nipple ring
a wedding

My nipple ring
I had a fling
My nipple ring
she is crying

My nipple ring
is now missing
My nipple ring
she's still leaving

Just for fun. Feedback appreciated.
