• The Box 69: DENIM

    Color: Denim

    Song: "Comfortable" John Mayer

    Stacked among the many
    Not special
    The everyday
    Pulled for comfort
    Kept even when they no longer fit
    Trying on many
    Sizing up your best choice.
    Do I go lipstick tight
    Baggy butch?

    The right fit hugs close
    No room for company
    Easy afternoon
    Cotton stretch over your body
    Cool jealousy course through me
    Watching from the pile.

    You put me on.
    You take me off.
    You put me away.
    Back again when you're in the mood
    that day.
    Faded but favorite.

    One day a box showed up
    And I was sent off with the old tees
    The shorts from too many summers ago
    And the lamp that has a short in the wire
    Checking all the pockets
    Careful not to leave a sign that you were ever here.
    And you found none.
    The only thing in your back pocket is more denim.

    Good...Will someone else want me?
    Surely they will...good.
    Love me like new
    The wear and tear at the hip
    The strip and shred at the knee
    The pulled back pocket with the random threads
    All the history that makes me unique
    And a lovely fit.
    A Perfect match for my next lover of comfort.
