Random Poem:

Coat Check

If you want it
claim it now.
Run to the foyer,
pull the folded ticket
from the pocket of your good suit,
and slap your hand on the counter
in time to the click of high heels behind you.
That good red coat was woven to warm you
but soon it will take its own form
and not fit you anymore.
