April 4th, 2010 -- "A Holiday Shirt in New England in 2010"
A striped number,
fresh in the sun,
pulled to the back of a belt to keep the front clean and sharp,
slightly wrinkled at the arms from being tossed on the corner of a couch,
smelling lightly of fresh air and clean sweat,
ambiguous in style,
held firm in pants by a tight, worn, dark, leather belt,
a vehicle for celebrating,
a good frame for better spirits,
a happy holiday,
a real gift for friends and family.
