The clothes #2


My clothes are all allies now.
They want to form a union
to fight static cling, lobby against
cat fur and cheap wire hangers.

They’ve resorted to blackmail.
My cardigan smells faintly of dog
but I can’t take it off because
my thin white shirt only veils
my turquoise bra,
sheer curtains
on a sunny day.

I've mended this tight black skirt twice
and instead of thanks I get
threatening hisses when I bend.

My defeat will come at the hands of
Marvin the Martian underwear.

Looney Tunes underwear is cool! That having been said, I will laugh so hard if that happens. :)
