Wire Hanger
by B.J. Jones

The wire hanger in the closet
has outlived sweaters, pants,
shirts, fashions, hobbies,
graduations, coats of paint,
marriages, births, guests,
funerals and even the move
to another closet where it
will live this all over again
while we cross out the days
from the wall calendar.
