19/30 Poem A Day Challenge

Waiting 
is the lace on the collar 
of the dress 
that you wear to school 
for picture day
and it scratches and itches, 
and scratches and itches,

  2. Interesting twist on "waiting". I usually associate it with anticipation or lines...but this connects it with forbearance. And it reminds me of having to wear itchy, scrunchy ruffled rumba undies for my First Communion!
