Poem of the Week-Holy Hat

The bonnet separates

Me from a higher power

Wholly Holy

The sun eats away

At my head

Burning through hair follicles

Searching the scalp

Making a whole

On the top

Of my green hat

Sweating through

100% Algodon

Cotton threads

The aged cap

No longer protects

The epidermis

Failure of the

Brimming shield

Hides the cancerous


Spiriting me away
