I no longer want to be
ashamed of my fleece,
Did you know,
every time you wear fleece
a Sasquatch hugs a tree?
When someone says
I should wear something nicer
I always imagine
I’m in a rowboat lined in fleece,
serenaded by a Sasquatch
strumming a fleece covered guitar,
in a rowboat so comfortable
the lake has to sigh
and let up those little wisps of steam,
the kind swans condescend to glide through,
the kind of fog thick enough to hide you
when the fashion police arrive
and begin to drag the lake.
Scott Poole’s spirit animal is Chewbacca because he is essentially
a space Sasquatch with a crossbow.
