When I was Twenty-three

When I was Twenty-three

I wore a watermelon pink, wool dress

that fell just below my knees

it was slim, with a slit at my neckline

I can’t forget my black felt hat

that let me tilt the very wide brim

so, I could peak from under it

in a very seductive way

but only in my mirror

when I think of this now

I am filled with happiness

but looking at a picture

is not the same as remembering
