Rich Relations

Amsterdam flowers

A day with rich relations
loomed across the state.
My state: annoyed.

They called us slobs
and the Addams Family.

So I ignored my flowery jumper
and wore my army green t-shirt,
bleach-splotched and torn,
truly insisting that it was my favorite.

    I would absolutely wear the bleached stained t shirt if I knew it would annoy people I don’t like. I admire how you made the day loom over the state and not the snobby people.
