Rob Schackne #712 - Used Clothing

Used Clothing

Used clothing, provenance
usually less examined than
penury or need. Costs a little
lasts a lot, how many wears
did it get anyway, good looking
whoever the jacket came from
and today your feat of empathy
deadman’s pyjamas, perfected

machine wash, take in the waist
loosen the noose, shorten the leg

providence isn't the city on the hill
an article wears someone for 100 years


  1. Ah the deadman's pyjamas - such a tell-tale image. I can imagine a whole series of used clothing poems :)

    1. Ha. I've used it before. Let me use it again!
