I’ll wear it once in the dark (if it snows)


“It’s a woolly
pom pom hat,
and that’s that!”,
she says.

Oh, no. Never.

Even the words
pom pom‘ make me
like no knitted other!

I say,
“There are those
that can wear
such an patently
absurd winter hat,
and those well,
who look in it,
a haggard, old elf
like myself.”

She says,
“Put it on anyways,
I can always
pull it half down
to conceal your frowns.”

that wasn’t quite the
pom pom ending
I was intending,
even if I’m just a man
of snow
and she, but only five
you know.

    I should have posted this nearer to Christmas methinks. It wasn’t going to be about a snowman originally, funny how poems take on a mind of their own.
