The Red Coat - Poem by Jennifer L Granville

I have a magic red coat...

In my coat,
I can cast a glamour, stronger than Merlin
And coax a smile brighter than the sun.

Perhaps it was the hue
Much more than the woman
But I think the red ran through me that night
And pulled from him the welcome...

My heels clicked faster than my racing pulse
As I hurried not to make him wait
My heart heavy with the anticipation of the moment...
The sight of his disappointment.

But I wore my magic red coat
Lucky me
And was greeted with a smile.
A truthful smile for that one moment.

A smile is so much more...
It can be a welcome
A relief
And a moment of home.

I have a magic red coat...
Stored now in quiet.
Holding his smile.
