When I clean out my closet, what am I parting with?
Like a layer of life
In the winter,
Languidly lounging amongst layers
Of conflagrant insulation.
Yet ably warming the shivering self within.
Like a memory
In years gone by,
Masking the melodramatic mime
Of melancholy materialism.
Teasing, the twitters, tatters of dorsal terrain.
Like a shielding coat of armor
In the battlefield of fashion,
Projecting a portraiture of poetry,
Punctuating periods of productive purpose.
Perhaps, peddling provocation for further pondering.
It’s difficult for me to part with my old t-shirts.
There’s too much of me in them.
If I clean out my closet,
Will I lose the memories?

|You write very well in this one. And, in doing so, you've elevated the T-shirt to a level I've never imagined. Taking your words for it, I suspect that being the gender you are, you've put far more into a little 'ole T-shirt that I ever could! Vive la femme! - Bill (with rusty French)
