Dress

The antique boutique
Didn’t want it
Because it had
Rips at its hem

And the local thrift store
Didn’t want it
Because it had
Stains on its breast

And the consignment shop
Didn’t want it
Because it had
Burns near its sleeves

So she buried it in
The back of her closet
Hoping to forget
When it promised more
