I added a “pop” of color to my wardrobe this fall.
Nothin too flashy — just a tone to break the black and grey zone —
Up the contrast and say “updated” —
So I acquired “bronzed ochre” matchstick cords and a “golden cypress” cardigan — and “pop” —
Today I was branded —
This, of course, means I will never ever wear these two articles of clothing together under any circumstances again in my lifetime — or yours.
And more than likely — I will give them away before the next full moon.
But don’t hold your breath for another glimpse of the kernel —
It’s highly doubtful anyone holding a sign saying “homeless will work for food and diapers” would be caught dead in mustard from head to toe.
