it makes me smile and twirl


i've long been a fan of eileen fisher
those minimalist fashion pieces
with above targe' prices

i've often hit the mall
just to glimpse at the newest lines
to check the cuts
and feel the fabrics

and this time i got caught off guard
by a lovely ink blue
linen cover

a topping that would waltz me through
client meetings
flea market junkets
library forays
and brisk dog walks

and i bought it

and afterwards i slept and woke up
to see the alphabet before me

a
b
c
d
e
f
g
h
i
j
k

my first name starts with a k
my last name starts with a j
so kj meets eileen fisher ef
and between ef and kj we have g hi
so gee hi eileen fisher but i can only offer this tentatively
cause if i could really afford you
it would be a hearty hello
