Dressing the Part

people behave badly from all positions of the totem pole

i never liked squishing my square feet into triangles

or the sound of heels clacking against a tile floor

but i inherited such ample choices

in the footwear department

as well as silk scarves and pins

that my closet is overflowing

with the ambitions of my parents

they aren’t ideal choices

for a job waitressing

where i can make no use of

suit lapels and i need to wear

sneakers. so i am applying

for some higher up position

ill say goodbye to my friends

and donate my skimpy dresses
