Like Lamb's Wool

PAD Challenge, Prompt #18: take the phrase "Like (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title to your poem, and write your poem

Memories caress her fingers
like lamb’s wool and corduroy,
sateen and polyester, slipping
over her hands, buttons gently
nudging and zippers jangling,
as she packs away the reminders
of the years before adulthood.
