Clothes

Not tattered ragged, or stained,
Just the same, the blue jeans stand out in the business proceedings.

A wrap, a shirt, and a wifebeater
Hide the fact she had a baby just
Three weeks ago.

Beneath his business suit
There is calm and verve, which he wears with
All the grace of the Designer’s cuts.

Layers, layers to keep out the cold,
As she roams between streets and alleys,
Trying to keep the demons at bay.

Dark rimmed glasses, tattoos and
A shock of pink hair to make everyone think
There’s someone there.
