Poem: "A Position of Defeat 28"



28.

the sun parading on its blue runway
has changed its chaos into floral chic
up to the minute as soho boutiques
it has passed up bouquets as passe

less is more as the clean shaved well heeled know
flocking to a petite clothes closet
they cinch their beef fed waists in a corset
woman and men and mannequins on show

if you imagine you can fight the trend
consider the spring show now at the met
punk style with its saliva blood and sweat
is catalogued by wintour as high end

no uniform becomes the uniform
in poetry as in pashmina shawls
from glitzy runways to the market stalls
the naked screams do nothing but conform
