Snap Dragons 


We tried 
giving them buttons,
but they melted 
those in no time. 
The zippers were 
a disaster, as 
they already had 
enough teeth. 
Buckles were trouble
and lace ties were – no 
surprise – not much 
help, either. The 
brooches looked 
ridiculous. Pins 
seemed promising 
until they didn’t. 
And so just like that
we allowed them to 
snap. The crackle 
and pop came later
and so did the 
smallish regret, but 
hey, at least we could 
say they stayed that way.
