These are my skinny jeans, my hipster pants.
They look so good because they love me as much as I love them.
I put them on and they hug me all day,
drawing people’s eyes to my legs,
and occasionally my rear.
Painter’s Tape Blue
Purple and Black Houndstooth Pattern
Black and White Cowslip
Grey and Black Splatter.
I have many pairs, and I love them equally.
I just apologize for being so shy about this love
that I usually delegate them to laundry week.
But not today.
Today I’m in Portland,
and my pants are quiet compared to the loudness of the city,
which is hugging me also.
