other people’s clothes

My closet is
peppered with
other people’s
clothes

I am a notorious
thief of

sweaters
t-shirts
cardigans–

if it’s soft,
thin, threadbare,

loved,

I’ll love it.

There’s something
about wearing
other people’s
clothes

they are reminders
of the people and
the love

and as soft
as they might be

they feel
like armor.
