January

Excellent read by R.A.D. Stainforth...

You sashay in,
buoyant in a woolly thing,

say it's better
than long underwear,

you think of it
as some kind of holy,

since your other sweaters
were put to sleep.

Turn around, then  
give me a side view,

come roost your silhouette
in the influence of my lap,

haberdasher of presses,
of all things deep.

  8. Yeah... I like the sense of humor of your gal as, I think that, only one with tons of it can be buoyant in that wooly thing. :-)

  27. Love it. Leonard might write about a "Famous Blue Raincoat", but only Tess can make a "Famous Pink Pullover" a poetic experience.
