False Pockets

I grew up
before the age of false economy
before fashion’s invention
of the false pocket.

I have learned to check.

What may look like a pocket
may be only that
a look,
but you have to look
to check
to know,
if what looks like a pocket
is a pocket.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I believe the reaction was influenced by the story of Plato's cave and the images on the wall but the immediate poem was inspired during a visit to the women's section of Walmart.

    I eat corn flakes.
    They are good.
    They don't remind me of tuna fish or that the road is cratered.
    I pity those who would sell cereal at a loss when there's so much profit to be had!
