Pickets

so flaunt your shapely pickets

feel free

to fence me in

Address

sunshine doubles

your house number 

as if I could forget

Singlets of the world

Singlets of the world

Dowdiest of nana-wear
your singlet clings to your lonely skin
your worried skin

you tuck it in
you barely feel it but you know it’s there for you
working full time for you

benign meniscus
keeping chills and death at bay
saving the hurts of the world for another day
