Satin

   
I hope he makes it through,
whoever on a dare
spray-painted on the school,
shamelessly as one ever could,
the word “satin.”
Between an anarchy sign
& a crooked swastika,
this is no devil,
but just might be the meanest
glossy fabric in town.

What hope do you have
when you’re wrong
at your most passionate?
Sweet screw-up, I send you
all the hope in the world.
