Proper Attire

By Tim Heerdink

Proper Attire


On a balmy June’s afternoon,
my bride of seven years
asks me if my tank top
will be the shirt of choice
as we set to eat at Little Angelo’s,
a place not too fancy
but enough for a button-up.

My as a matter of fact reply;
These tattoos cost more
than any cloth
I could possibly find.

I’m good.
