The Call to beige

I see it all around me, the fading
from colours that matched them so
the call into slacks, proper shoes
cardigans, windcheaters in beige.
I guess it’s the call to buy clothes
‘that will see me out’
The desire of comfort over fashion
the letting go of the daily anxiety
how to present in a hustling world
away from comfy slippers home
when the call comes upon me
I’m hoping the firing squad
will not be far behind
