Trashing Misery

Once I listened
to some good advice
beside a swimming hole in Vermont.

My soaking blue jeans
lost their spartan sparkle as
Pat O’Malley’s face glistened
like Athena’s.

On the spot
I changed into her boyfriend’s overalls
and a Mexican peasant shirt
as dry as Baja,
because I knew she loved us both.
