July 4: 

Red plaid shirt

First of all, I take immense pleasure to inform you guys that I own a red plaid shirt and it’s a recent one that I bought from an exhibition that is so very familiar to me and my mom.

Now there are some dresses that you can’t help but like because no matter what they never make you uncomfortable and itchy in anyway.

And my red plaid shirt is one such example!

And since we can use that as very comfortable metaphor, I intend to do the same😏.

Here’s a poem that I owe to my shirt!



Spread it out!

The rough texture

Runs like melting solid

On her impudent palm.

The years it’s seen

The dust laden

Layer covering it

While it stay strewn

On the ignored attic

Invisible in the nescient clouds

High up above.

She’d worn it to wars

To treaties and merry spurious parties.

Torn and stretched

Stitched, re-fastened

Again and yet again

Seeing a new day

Just like she’d made it out

Of all the hard shelled days.

Running her irregular fingers

Through the red plaid shirt


Through days

Black, white and grey

For that single spot of red


Over the distressing grey.

Ignore the other stuff in the picture! 



My nominations;

  1. Peppered with stories
  2. Stoner on a rollercoaster

See ya!

  2. I miss plaid shirts. They always remind me of Kurt Cobain.

      Yeah i have heard about him, but not so quite familiar. You can find plaid shirts on online shopping platforms but they are quite the cost.
      Anyways, thanks for dropping by!
