2013 photo, (the lady in the red top - my daughter) in the queue to buy tickets for a movie


She wears her jeans of blue,
Caught in a teenage oooh;
"Looks painted on"
Those catty cronies remark;
Oh, but she; happy as a lark.



craft camp...
a pair of ragged jeans morphs
into a tote

Enjoyed both, but your second one made me smile. Yes, jeans can live on beyond their prime. A denim tote would be cool!

I can see the disapproving matrons and she "happy as a lark". Love the jeans morphing into a tote....cool.

Gabriella said...

Two very sweet poems, Gillena! I like the idea of a denim tote but it might be too small for all my stuff.

Laurie Kolp said...

"a pair of ragged jeans'" brings to mind Eliot's "a pair of ragged claws." Let's see:

after English class . . .
a pair of ragged jeans
scuttling across the mall

And now for something completely different:

in line
for the r-rated movie
my daughter

Pure fiction. Not your daughter, and certainly not mine – I've never had one. "r-rated" in the American rating system means "No children unless accompanied by an adult."

She ought to rock those jeans. Ain't nobosy's business but her own.

Loved that she is "happy as a lark"! Hopefully oblivious to remarks!
