Shirts and Happiness


I love the way women look in men's shirts
those buttoned ones especially when
the shirt is off center because
the buttons are in the wrong holes
rawr!

I don't know what it is about a pretty lady
in one of my buttoned shirts, pantsless,
of course,
that makes it so so so very pretty
my shirts are way too big
and she's so petite when I imagine her
wearing them
but Kate is gone
and I'm lonely most times.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
