Patent

She wore her underwear
on her sleeve
for all to see
for all to enjoy

Why be shy
was her quizzical question
to no one personal
to no one general

I’m the inventor of upperwear
and I’m proud of it

Today’s prompt at octpowrimo.com was ‘broken’. I have written about my broken foot already and enough posts have been inspired by a brain that felt broken, so today only my picture will be on prompt. The poem seems to have been written May 22nd 2014, at least that’s what my notebook claims. I’m too tired to come up with something new.

    Just looking at your picture makes me ache. I completely sympathise.

    On a different note, I just love your poem, the idea of upperwear (makes me think of Tupperware, that’s become a household name)
    It’s almost whimsical, and so true!

    Sending positive energy to help you get better quicker!
