Poem of the Fortnight: No Reverse

Poetry of the Fortnight is back! At least for the time being.

No Reverse

How could I?

How could I?

Needing to maintain closet equilibrium
I must weed my wardrobe,

feeding first the blue
then the red
into the shredder.

I love these shirts,
especially the red,
a hand-me-down Old Navy
with floral motif
that looks Japanese
and goes with nearly everything.

Soft cotton jams the teeth.
I stop and try to back it up, pull them out,
wonder why I’m doing this.

T-shirt necklines cut beyond repair,
too late to change my mind.

Mercifully still intact.

Mercifully still intact.
