Considering the Most Recent Loss of a Hat
Farewell jaunty cap and your kindred,
all those berets and fedoras adrift, forgotten
in the cafes and train seats of the world.
Farewell all you guitar picks and magazines
I meant to read, favorite pens and penknives,
earrings, earring backs and stopped watches,
now the flotsam and detritus of a gleaming planet.
And you, my lost darlings, my loves, what of you?
What of you?
