enough for an old troll

©2022 Michael Raven

costumes no longer fit
i wish it weren't so
i miss texture tactile
gauze velvet cotton
something leather
around my throat
to ward against
social vampire nip
competing with winter cold
i could pull
androgynous sexy in lace
back then
as an old fashion whore

none of those fit
i'm an old troll
and everything

and too
much effort

i wrap my keffiyeh
round my throat
disheveled grey locks
i can't be bothered to cut
tumbling over cascade

it is enough,
i suppose.
enough for an old troll
