White Shirts











Wishing all friends across the Pond a happy holiday!




With white shirts, he said
the pain is that stains proclaim
your ineptitude
in a competitive world
blighting self-esteem


Dripped cappuccino
spinach, lentil soup, red wine
are markers of taste
and habitude and hunger
A neat paradox


But the choice is smart
even after Labor Day
I said. Obama's
an iconic trendsetter
It comes from the top


They suit you, I said
You wear pristine honesty
on your sleeve, or front
You strive against the tide for
the immaculate


That's Hope triumphant
You're no whited sepulchre
sporting a dark shirt
You wish the Cloths of Heaven
and Resurrection
