Wifebeater

Unlike all others

The posers of before

He is all mine

This kinda love is too fine

Daydreaming through the day

Of a scheme to get away

To his kinda comfort

That touch

Smell

Need I say more?

Don’t care what others whisper

When they see him on me

After all these years he’s kinda raggedy

Dingy

It’s alright

He’s all mine

And when this day is done

He’s waiting on me at home

He’ll be clean

Tho’ tattered

Tight

Ready to be worn

Fitting just my form

Wifebeater

Hahaha! Thanks Michele and Trench. By the way, the tv show cops is partly responsible for the nickname from what I understand. Remember the guys they would arrest for domestic violence would always seem just to be wearing a t-shirt, ribbed, white, sleeveless?? Hence...wifebeaters. That's just what I've always been told though.

I have never understood why they called it a wife beater..just seem as something doesn't fit....love the way you described the shirt and your affection for it...I love the way you write....keep up the good work.

Gotta love those wifebeaters! Fun. Hate it when they get too dingy and raggedy--one does get attached!
