Wheezes and Corduroy

Wheezes and Corduroy

A Poem by j
"

an old poem i still like ... simple but poignant in her devotion to him, misguided or not

"





























Just wave goodbye again

and wheeze as you dance away

    bedhead silly

And I'll wait here on this street corner

in pjs and your corduroy shirt

shamelessly improper in rush hour traffic

 

And

     it came to me today

     in the bare soles of my feet

that no matter how many dreams I

filled with tulips and tears,

     wheezes and corduroy was the

only promise you ever made to me

Such a murmur of memories in this, dear friend.. or imagination flying within and around the bustle of living a who knows where life. You've chosen such simple sounds and cloth and its those that create a picture... then cements the promise ever made. You both see and feel it.. all i can do is read. And wonder if..

Sad yet such fine writing.
