It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Life is for living

So don’t put it in a jar behind the door.

I would do some funny walks
Talk funny talk
Make a face
Wear a big floppy hat trimmed with lace
Sit in the bath in black top hat
Sing an aria
Pet the cat.
I bet I could make you smile
If I could run a mile
with
Thumping heart and stitch in my side
But remember…none of us can hide.
Take some time out
To stand and look up at the sky
See the beauty of colour in a tabby cat’s eye
Marvel at a butterfly’s wing
Feel the Earl Grey light
Against your skin.
Choose the hard centres from a box of chocs
Inspect a row of cottage hollyhocks.
Use the gifts you have
They are many
Send a letter
Cheer someone up
Make them better
Eat a cracker with a bed of fetta
Leave a message of graffiti
On a sterile wall
Listen for the bellbird’s call
You are unique
Listen to these words I speak
And when the tears
Threaten to flow
Remember this poem
And you will know
You are truly unique
And you will go far
If you don’t put your life
Behind the door
In a jar.
