Costume Check: The Sunday Whirl Wordle #588


Costume Check

Let me stand here for a moment hidden in the shade,
for my tank top strap is broken right by my shoulder blade.
I’ll shuffle off to mend it when the band starts up again,
but will stand here nearly silent as a statue until then.

My arms are wrapped around me, holding things in place,
for with one side that’s set free, I’m not ready to face
the folks up in the grandstand staring down at me.
Their half-time entertainment I do not want to be!

I’m a living manifestation of how things fall apart,
for the garment that once hugged my frame now hangs below my heart.
The breeze blows yellow pollen downward from the trees
to coat my arms and shoulders and makes me want to sneeze.

Oh that I’d brought the handy shawl Mom thought that I should bring,
I’d now be in the powder room, fixing everything.
Instead, I stand here cross-armed wishing eyes could be averted
so their perusals of my chest could thereby be diverted.

    WHAT’S UP~?

    Maybe you got too exuberant~! And that’s how you lost your strap. Understanding the message you sent I have had similar feelings like that.

    The mention of things low down just reminded me of my slip when I went all the way to town forgetting that I was unzipped.

    Do I let those things bother me~? I don’t worry or wear a frown those are my majestic parts you see all proudly there hanging down.

    Don’t let nature get you feeling drub don’t ever even desire this to stop if God wanted them all perked up He would not have let them flop.
