It was almost olive drab once,
now faded OD, but green,
the back says, Nothin’s Easy.
A well-worn tee from my days
running or trekking Government
Canyon, near San Antonio. It’s
not a canyon at all.
On the front you can make out
the drawing of the hills,
the name ends with, State
Natural Area. The crew neck fabric
is tattered from use and washes.
It’s size large to hang loose,
but no longer does.
Do you think it shrunk?
Or have I expanded
my physical surroundings?
If I had a favorite tee,
this might be it,
but I don’t want others to feel
helly-jelly. It’s just a shirt.
Like the brown one I’m wearing now
from my second Cowtown Marathon
that says, opposite the front,
I’m Back. Cuz I was.
Look both ways for ties to tees and memories.
Mind the gaps or it’s the rag bin for sure.

I heard that somewhere in the past. Kind of a millennial thing. Thanks, Sue.
