My boss asks
What hobo I robbed to get them
I look down to see my knee shining through
A very odd tan line
I could just throw them away
I have two other pairs

I sometimes wish that I cared
But there are things that matter more
Than the fact that they’re ugly
And make me look poor

My shoes must go too
I'll part with them
But with these pants
I'll cut a hole in the thigh
And wear them again

I didn't buy them this way
And it was barely on purpose
That these holes formed
Growing bigger and bigger
As I grow more anxious

Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On

Have you ever wondered
what comfort is made of,
what it feels like against your skin,
how you wear it?
It's a pair of jeans that fits just right,
just the right amount of stretch
to hug to my shape and
cover the tops of my shoes.
That’s my favorite piece of comfort,
what I pull out for a crisp fall day in the woods
or a cozy winter evening by the fireplace.
They’re my thing of choice for
shopping and working and hanging out,
that undemanding pair of
slightly faded
partly cotton
petite length
blue jeans.

The hat upon my head
Sewn together
Held together
So perfectly by silly little threads

Black and white
Read and yellow
It sits upon my head
Making me look
Oh so mellow

My head never seems freezing cold
It protects me from the beating sun
Protects my straight hair from the rain
Disguises me on the train

Everything is so damned perfect
When I'm wearing my
Perfect little hat
On my perfect little head

with spaces its 20 lines

;) My first post, please respond and let me know what you think.

Ode To My Nightshirt

I picked you up at a discount store for 5 dollars, not what I really want, but your cute

I hate your colors, red, black and white stripes

You look more like an inmate uniform then a nightshirt, but any port in a storm

You look comfortable and might come in handy someday, maybe I could use you a few times

I took you home and resisted taking you out of the bag for months, I'm still not sure about you

I finally took you out because I was cold and needed your long warm sleeves around me, if just for one night!

You are strictly going to be worn in the privacy of my home, we are NOT an item!

You are my "ugly" girlfriend that I can't admit to dating

We have a "frenefits" relationship, and that's not going to change. I am strictly using you for my benefit!!

You are comfortable and familiar but I still occasionally use other nightshirts

I use you, wash you, put you away and forget about you for weeks at a time

You just don't captivate me, especially in the summer months you are easy to ignore. All the skimpy, sexy nighties make themselves available to me

Maybe I should give you away, make room for something new, someone else might appreciate you more

But no, I decide to hold on to you for now, even though your not the prettiest, you are still useful at times

I am cold, tired, and have no clean nightshirts, I put you on.....again. More out of laziness

You are soft, warm, always fit just right, you never shrink away from me, you always make me feel good

I don't tell you I love you, because I think I could still do better!

I search the stores for a prettier nightshirt, a better color, a better fit, a better feel. My search is futile but I don't want to admit that to myself, am I settling?

I find myself wearing you everynight, missing you when your in the wash and dreading the day that we would ever part company, you are my constant companion

I LOVE YOU! Your Beautiful, your everything I ever wanted and more! I can't live without you! I'm sorry I took you for granted. Please don't ever leave me! I want you in my life forever!

Beaten to poop unicorns and rainbows and cracked around the edges,
Lets all the water through on the rainy days,
And useless in the snow.

So worn down that I've got to wear plastic bags to keep the wetness out,
The sole on one side flops when I walk,
But somehow it's still okay.

You've seen me through breakups,
Challenges and running away.

Followed me through Massachusetts,
Philly, NY and everywhere else.

And you've been the perfect fit since the day I found you,
Hidden on a back shelf in Salem,
Gathering dust and practically calling my name.

I can't trade you in for anything,
My skin's worn too deep into yours now.
And that's fine by me.

T-shirt or jeans?
Do I have to pick one?
Both are comfy and faves,
for such, can't be outdone
Cottony clothing to be worn,
even torn
They look good on all:
short, average, and tall
Right out of the bag
no need to break in
this clothing feels good
right next to my skin
Jeans in blue, black, or purple
I won't wear a girdle, but maybe a thermal
T-shirts with writing, or artwork, or not
even plain T’s are fantastically hot!
I love them both
and I cannot decide
I cannot do it,
although I've tried.

“My Hat” Poem by James Williams 12/13/2010

I want you to know, I love you so,
I’m telling you this, in case you ever have to go.
You always help conceal my knowledge,
And you helped me get through college.

You always cover me from the son,
I wouldn’t trade you for anyone.
When it rains, you are so protective,
Because of that, I am very respective.

When I watch Football on Sunday,
I through the right one on and celebrate.
You come in many different shapes and colors,
I even got a few of you, from my Brothers.

I can wear you many different ways,
And still look cool on any given day.
One of my favorite things about you,
I can get dressed fast, without much to do.

I love the way you make me feel,
I keep you me it’s a big deal.
You see, my Love runs deep for you,
If I stopped wearing you, I don’t know what I would do!

Hooded sweatshirt
How many sizes too big...
Keeps me
Hides my
muffin top,
mom hips.
Covers my
mom butt.
sloppy sleeves
to hide my
arthritic hands.
Imprint proclaims:
off duty.
Save yourself."

I like to wear my hat.
It goes with my favorite bat.

I like to wear it every day.
I like to wear it. Is that okay?

It has a "Julliard" symbol where I want to go to school.
It make the other kids drool.

So, I like to wear my favorite hat.
I even gave to my cat.
