|This skirt was once a go-to item chez nous.|
Last week I found myself in H&M with a friend and our two tween daughters. We were debating the pros and cons of this season's skater skirts. Are the fitted high-waists and short flared A-lines cute or frumpy? Playful or risque?
I went home thinking, "Who the hell cares?" and wrote this poem.
The skirts this year are rather short.
Girls' legs seem longer than last year—
sleek muscles on view. Take a look.
Why is it every time you look
the world spins faster? Breath grows short?
Blink and forgo this current year.
Watch. Skirts will be longer next year.
They'll retreat to a modest look.
Fashion and wiles are fickle and short.
In the span of one short year, the look changes around you, without you.
