.black pullover.
Contributor

liking jazz should listen more
maybe google will help me
in that respect

remember those days dancing
at least wednesdays & fridays
with a bit of luck after payday
saturday too
with the new pullover
bought from the men’s
department

the fashion had not then
entered the overall market

maybe we came ahead of our time
without understanding all the
implications

i got thinner
& lost my job
for dressing funny

that was before the laws
changed. i disliked the
place
anyhow

it smelled funny
and now i know why he
always sent me to the store
upstairs to work where no one
saw me

the other girl dressed like all the others

it seemed i dressed funny

& danced to jazz
particularly well to
modern
i felt

as not many even tried

those days

oh really
oh really
