SHOPPING

I find myself obscured
for fashion.
Outdated clothes
low heeled shoes
mini skirts
and green felt boots
only fairies wear.

My size is medium
                 large
              & extra large.
Depending on what particle
fits where.
If I could find cover
for my brain
      my lungs
      my heart
I'd look elsewhere
in mens' department.
The place I find
everything I want.
In sizes that actually fit!

Even in colors that
make no sense.
Orange green & blue
Plaids on stripes
checkered polka dots
& spots, corduroy on
silk!!
Whatever is in style
won't look half
as right.

Whatever isn't, is a dream
waiting to happen.
