short one that i cut from “real bad scrape” zine

Nice Sweater

Can I just wear a nice sweater
Instead of an X-RAY
I’ll show my bones to everyone-
Admitting old friends for free, even new comers
To gawk in awe or say
They expected to see what they saw
The exhibits of elusive and convincing
looked bigger from the outside
Now I’m a Ricky Henderson-
An appreciated thief
Known for something requiring
The slowly revoked gifts of speed and bravery
Getting caught more and more
As the seasons pass
