Devin Jenness // ODE TO MY HAT

I procured myself

a polyester

black and white hat

which was made

thousands of miles away,

one hat as cool as

any you will ever see.

I slipped it onto

my head

as if it was

a case

hand-crafted

for only me.

My brown hair,

the landing

platform

for my hat

became

like a ritual

to me

everyday.

Without out

my worn out

old hat,

I feel lost

but with it

I feel whole.
