Poem of the Week--"Nostalgia"


for the lady who told me I wrote too often about nostalgia

I don’t like my socks
They’re too hard
Although they’re all made of cotton
And the elastic in them is good
They’re hard not soft
Like socks used to be

I think I need all new socks

Other people complain about Kids These Days
And Prices and
How You Can’t Go See a Movie Because It’s Downright Embarrassing
And They Don’t Make (Fill in the Blank) Like They Used To
But I think They Don’t Make Socks Like They Used To

They’re too hard

Darn them.

--Dan Verner
