sanforized

everything seemed to need effort then

buying my first Levi’s

before sanforized became a trademark

having to sit in a tub of hot water

while they shrank to fit

the dark dye staining legs the tub

upsetting mothers everywhere

needing to travel next town city over

to find the right shirt coat

even socks had to be the right kind

as did the shoes

finding ox blood cherry polish

for the doctor martens

all busy work for this growing boy

determined to be a fashion victim
