Petite paisleys decked menswear just for awhile;©02/28/2013 Carol Welch
salmon prevailed, and orchid and pink.
Ivy league straps and buckles passed by in style,
Norfolk jackets, bell bottoms, in sync.
Cargoes are in with pockets on legs;
Spandex is only for sports.
Grungies, dropped crotches, symptoms of the dregs,
of what current fashion purports.
The daisy-decked garlands, patch patterned flares,
peasants and fringed skirts saw their day.
Chain-draped leather and dew rags have their place,
but Levis are never passe`.
