Costume

We are the People of Costume:

Fuchsia pants and chartreuse shirts,

feathers, faux fur, fezzes and fedoras.

Pink tutus, santa suits,

spandex, leather, cowboy boots.

Stripes with polka dots?

Ballet shoes?

Of course! Of course!

Where DID you get that shirt?

No need to hide now,

No one will point their finger.

A thousand peacocks

Will silence the jeers.

All that we once imagined

we can now become.

The world’s our stage,

the dress rehearsal endless.

Transforming our lives

by changing our clothes.
