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

Picture - Matthew

A black and white plaid scarf
wraps itself loosely around a mans neck
Pitched to the back of his head sits a fedora hat
Wrapped around his thin frame a woollen suit jacket lives
Tight dark blue jeans reach a pair of black canvas shoes
Black sunglasses hide the previous night’s performance

He walked into my arms today

Slung over his shoulder a bag of washing
weighs him down

Immediately I want to unburden him
Let me put that on for you
Would you like a cup of coffee
toast with eggs
a roast an apple pie?

Can I remove that scar from near your eye?
The one I could not prevent or even tend to
Like I did with the scrapes on your little boy knees

Have I told you lately
I’m proud of you?

You joke and quote Dylan
The Beatles lyrics your mantras
Existentialism your badge
It’s not a slip of my eye
watching your mind tick

I pinch myself til I bruise
every inch of skin
Remembering the moment
you sat at a piano and played
Classical music for your grandparents

I had no idea you knew how to play

The strings of a guitar
reverberate much more than
the tunes you play
Your soul is unleashed

Again, I had no idea you knew how to play

The note book you carry under your arm
Wrapped tightly with an elastic band
I’m certain
carries deep within its pages
more than tram ride conservations

Dare I peak into its pages
And learn the many things

I have no idea about
