“Button Up Shirt”

needing a shower

but lacking the

drive and ambition

to take one,

i change shirts,

a surefire

short term fix

to tide me over

till inspiration returns,

sliding into a

white button up job

with a collar

and a gray plaid

crisscross design,

the kind of thing

that just smacks of

i’ve-got-it-togetherness

and flies directly

in the face of

how i really feel
