“To match the shoes with the jacket is fey. To match the shoes with the hat is taste.”
You never dressed for the occasion,
but always for an occasion
—this walk in the park
a case in point
with a point to prove.
To match your suit to the ferns
and foliage was fey, I’m afraid.
To match the ring with my dress
and your tears with your hatband
is a taste we won’t display
together again. Now go.
A hat tip to you, but don’t look back;
I’m too busy seeing what goes
with the shadows around this place.
