Don't trip over it.
Cardboard in rectangular shapes
five sides bound together
I will mention them
boxer shorts, stinky socks
mostly blues, browns, and greens
and a few black
Old T-shirts -- sorta frayed
but still my favorites
And wild colored tank tops worn to bed
bought at a Mervyn's sale
Soon they'll take a dizzying bath together
and suffer the round and round heat
And then we'll do it again.
