Worn Pants

My pants are stitched back together
– messily –
by me.

The sewing is pisspoor
the patches mismatched
the stitches uneven
and in places unfixed
the pants are wearing away
and filthy

but I worked on these pants
knitting them back together
from near-death
and though they’re a mess
a hideous wreck of a product
they’re mine
and beloved by the one
who wears the pants around here
– which I have to put on
two feet at a time
for fear of some new tear
or something.
