The Lace Collar

from The Cover of Hunter by Liam Betson



My seams don't have to be so tight.
But if they come undone
will they stay undone?
And will I pass by everything
without noticing anything?
Just be floating there?

But I pulled this shirt over my head.
I admired the lace around the neck.
The stitching is fair,
the folds all neat,
and my face looks fine,
and my hands are clean.
So I can turn them around—
these bad feelings.
Here's a hoot and a howl—
I’m celebrating
like a neighbor's dog who crawled into the yard;
with dirt on his paws, he let out a bark
upon finding something he'd buried there last year.
It was cause for some joy.


from The Cover of Hunter, released July 22, 2014
