Do you ever feel an urge
deep within your bones
to don that turtleneck and sport coat,
slide gel covered fingers through your hair,
and dare to do something of note?
formal, expensive, maybe antiquated-
thoroughly out of your element?
It's a thrill
dabbling in the world of the elites,
casting your best image into the stream
of cash and venom.
And always a sigh of relief to return
to flannel and denim.
