Simmering Over Calm Ketchup Skies

If there is one ounce of freedom in

this world

it would be the fabric, round my toe

it’s curled.

No matter the pacing of your gait,

apparel is cause to celebrate.

Black, white, green, or blue,

bring out your natural hue-

unless you’re wearing shorts,

then you’re fucked mate.
