Regular Poem: Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years

14 Apr

When I’m super rich
the first thing
I’ll do
is hire a tailor

who’ll make me all these
beautifully draped
that will look
like an extension of myself

not like some bagain-rack jacket
whose sleeves
are too long
that I make work
by jauntily rolling them up

who’ll make me
slacks that are snug
and the right length
and a lot of
one-button blazers
with satin lapels
to wear with them

who’ll make me
gowns and skirts
and just all kinds of blouses
piping and sequins
and epaulettes and brocade

who’ll make me
gush and gush
as I thank her
and throw money at her.

I’ll make some tailor
very happy
when I’m super rich.

    Me too!

    Also, one cannot over-do the jauntily rolled-up sleeves.
