From the collection published in 2015, Catch Up With Summer.
Thirty Years Ago It Worked Great
All you people going to work this morning
Has anyone today
this very humid going-to-be-hot-this-afternoon
thought of wearing seersucker
pants skirt shirt suit?
I think not
I believe it’s out of style, seersucker, but
seersucker can cure a lot of summer complaints
and look good doing it.
I did see a man in a seersucker suit
blue and white stripes
the other day
but I did not feel I could ask him
if he viewed himself as an anachronism
or merely happy to be out-of-style
in exchange for comfort.
Think about it.
