Scratch

a horse hair shirt
tugged and smoothed
to little avail
dreaming
of feather down
or the pleasure
of being
simple...understand?
and laughter
and wit
and Gods!
what i
would do
for a sliver
of amusement
irreverent
and true -
you understand...
of course!
it could be me who
zipped up
pissed off
forgot your sweet name
at the door?
metaphorically
it probably was...
has it been
as good for you
as it has
for me?
