Optional Compelling Detail

How well it fits me

You pronounce







At another’s part

You try it on

For fun

Like a child

Dressing up in adult’s clothes


How good you look

In this guise, you think

Smarter, stranger

So shiny

This off the hanger

Put on personality


If only you knew

How it really felt

To wear the clothing

The weight of it

Dragging at your feet

Permanent and inescapable
