1497


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.

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

"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."
