My black sock
with my brown shoe
is bothering me.
Where else, I think,
watching the clerk
shelf books,
could a girl come
to work wearing jeans
and a thermal shirt,
topped off with
a floral slip dress?
Her outfit bothers me
in its aesthetics,
though I hail
its eccentricity.
A quality that is
clearly dear
to God.
