am i alone? one who ponders
that moribund couture
of construction paper cutout grey haired men in black
all baggy in tee-shirts itinerant ragged
like a wrinkled flock of soup kitchen hobos
who came up with that gig?
too embarrassed to laugh
but if I imagine, just a moment
paisley prints, love beads, perhaps – platform shoes?
can't but help myself
to one, seriously fashionable laugh
