Star Pockets

Published on 7 June 2023 at 21:54

She looked at the universe

Stole the littlest star

And put it in her pocket


I said it was thoughtful

It must be sorrowful

A tiny star in that big black pit


She said she wasn’t being thoughtful

Her pockets were awful

There was no room for a big star to fit

Behind the Poem...Ladies' Fashion

Women's pockets, my dude. Let me tell you. If there is a rant to be had, that would be it.

This poem idea actually came from an Instagram post I saw yesterday. No clue what it was about except that someone was looking at the universe in a dreamy and romantic way. So of course I did what I do best and went "how can I untomantisize this in a way that benefits humanity?" Which leads me back to the rant. Women's pockets. They're too small.

You can't fit anything in there. If I did, say, want to get a star from the sky, there would be nowhere to put it. I do not want to buy a purse just to store my stars thank you very much. I would like to carry my wallet, my phone, my keys, and my gaseous fire ball in my pants like everyone else please and thank you.

All I am saying is that I would just like for my tiny Loop earplugs case (non-spon but should) to not poke out of my pants. That can't be that hard to ask. I'm not sure who is in charge of fashion, but if someone finds them please kindly relay this message to them. I, and the rest of women's-pants-wearing-kind, will be forever grateful.
