Day 6 of 30

POST-ELECTION, 11/09/16

slopey shoulder seams
soggy sleeves too long
white shirt wrinkled
baggy gappy dingy collar
puckered and jagged
from misaligned buttons
two-button blazer like
trash bag in midnight
wide tie tied too tight
knot no different
than yesterday’s but
feels chokey now
pants got no seat all
waist but no room and
unraveling hem

him
staring aghast
disgusted disoriented
tugging at the fabric
picking at the now
unfamiliar fibers
pulling and pulling
but not pulling it off
after all this is
his only suit so
instead called out
for his wife

to ask about where
this new mirror
came from
