Smoothing out what can’t be ironed…

when i bought the shirt it looked
nice on its hanger. i should have
taken a picture of it then, cuz
that was the last time it looked
so good.

after i washed it, magical wrinkles
formed stubborn creases all over its
surface, and now i might as well go
unshaven to my appointment with
a faith healer.
