LXXXI-29 Time's Tattered Effects

Postby hawkseye » Mon Nov 27, 2017 10:28 pm

Time’s Tattered Effects

Edges grow fuzzy,
threads tattered,
fabric thins
approaches translucent
in places, or blotched
brown, signs
indicative of years
long in number
even a stitch here,
fabric added there
insufficient
for restoration,
body limps along
best it can,
encased
in the only jacket
this lifetime allows.

This is very good.

My old jacket might be a bit tattered and spotted, but it's so much more comfortable now than it was when it was still new.

Great comparison of clothes to our bodies. Enjoyed it.
