Pyjamas

20170825_162709 (2)Clinging to the comfort of cotton-closeness

Is it really time to say goodbye?

Your waistband is frayed,

and too tight, anyway.

Holes around the ankles,

from when the Dog was a puppy.

A patterned bleach-splash that

turned out quite beautiful-

and sort of blended in.

Cleaning in pyjamas became

gardening in pyjamas,

graduated to shopping in pyjamas.

That’s why I need a new pair.

So difficult to choose because I

tend to fill them up with my

ever increasing behind.

It’s getting bigger and bigger.

Now I don’t fit you, and

you don’t fit me.

We’ve had some good times,

but it’s time to say goodbye.

I wonder if the recycling will want you?
