My Jacket
Ingrid, Age 12, Bowie, MD
                     
Lavender, elastic fuzz
woven in the shirt's inside
I can still smell the
damp mildew of wet
grass clung
to its dung-fumed
odour.
Round, plastic buttons
tinted gold
from the its v-lined
interior.
Bored open
like a
popped
balloon.
Sheared thread
strung
across the
split layers
tiling its
black and
white checkered
exterior.
Fringed and uneven,
My used jacket
My battered jacket
My lovely jacket
Mine.
