I still think about those red jeans…
Not the Girbauds from middle school,
Coca-Cola, fire truck, stop sign
Red jeans that glow from bankruptcy,
Make you want to bring back an age
That won’t come with all its color.

No, I think about washed-red jeans,
New T-shirt turns best jeans pale red,
Final threads of another life
Pinked useless, fresh stain on the past,
An ordinary laundry load
Signaling the time to move on.
