Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On

Prompt from Writer's Digest: write a poem dedicated to your favorite piece of clothing.

Have you ever wondered
what comfort is made of,
what it feels like against your skin,
how you wear it?
It's a pair of jeans that fits just right,
just the right amount of stretch
to hug to my shape and
cover the tops of my shoes.
That’s my favorite piece of comfort,
what I pull out for a crisp fall day in the woods
or a cozy winter evening by the fireplace.
They’re my thing of choice for
shopping and working and hanging out,
that undemanding pair of slightly faded
partly cotton
petite length
blue jeans.
