Ode to My Coat

Your lined pockets

Deep as a cozy arm chair

A secure haven

For my cold fingers

Your upturned collar

stands guard

Against the cutting wind

Your black buttons

Are firm shields

Unhackable passwords

Letting nothing through

Your outline sharp

You cut a fine figure

Square shouldered

Braced against the elements

Your thickness

A warm cocoon

A mothers embrace
