Motorcycle Coat

The leather jacket is too cool.
It’s too hot.
It’s too sharp
too black
too imposing
too much.

I couldn’t pull off such a motorcycle coat
in my younger prettier days
let alone now
in this hideous condition.
The poseur is appear in such garb
would be

exactly as I appear tonight
in this dark
sharp and imposing
much too black night
that I cannot pull off
not matter how much
I need to tonight.
