I like fashion yet rarely wear it well,
hair bob's never sleek & silky knots
foreign to my fingers,
so I fashion words, stitch them
strapless, stretchy, beaded,
sometimes boho chic.
My favorite: embroidered,
even a bit lacy,
but that doesn't mean
I've banned racer-backs
or scoop-necked and sassy.
Treated a few to the "red carpet",
promenaded them, pivots and twirls,
before a live audience
to a round of applause;
french knotted scarf
compliments of my daughter.

This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Bits of Inspiration - Poet Discovery" Why do we write poetry? I've written to this question before, so opted for something a bit fun and I hope this metaphor works...
I invite you to listen to me read "Fashioning Poetry"
