The Dress

everyone has one
makes you feel confident
beautiful, brilliant, witty
transformative of the higher self
mine is purple pajamas, of course
and green shirt, with unguents
and ginger scents
a half hour mirrorside
with hardly any talkback from it
a primitive ritual
without human sacrifice
to shore up steel, to mark time
to register and remember
despite many subsequent cutenesses
that a few hours in tiny toddler worldview
with a couple of near death experiences
and post traumatic tantrums thrown in
is life altering
