Saturday

Worn out without a doubt




Letting go can lighten the load.

Worn out without a doubt

Abandonment is agony.
Desertion’s an epiphany.
My favorite rags, I must release.
Disbanded duds have lost their lease.

Here lies what’s left of my best shirt –
Relinquished, ragged, soiled with dirt.
I left it in the wash too long,
And now it’s sung its own swan song.

This comfy top, beyond the sew,
Is fit now just to scare a crow.
c2016 by Linda Ann Nickerson

  2. Aw... it's sad when a favorite article of clothing becomes too worn to wear. Makes me think of a pair of huge cords I used to have...
