the powerful message of dirty, mismatched socks

white, originally,
but now, worn for eight days straight
they are
Something Else,
including being
like so much else,
tumbling down these
stairs, catching each
carpet tack,
eventually becoming
just a loosely woven
tangle of threads;
but for now, at least,
you have a pair.
