She startles me in the fitting room with Levi’s shirts.

Long sleeved ones meant for you, she tells me,

with a wink and a well-meaning grin as I frown.

I model each to please her, all four of them:

A green khaki cotton with clouded silver buttons,

A dark somber blue that perfectly matches my mood,

A light-hearted ivory I’d never’ve even glanced at,

And a bright red-orange that actually pleases me.

By now I realize she’s on to something.

You’ve found my look! I tell her as she grins,

Her knowing grin, the one that helps me be,

That earnest grin which breathes life into me.
