One Pair Of Cool Socks

I own a pair of psychedelic socks.

They’re not toe socks. They’re just regular socks.

They’re yellow, red, dark blue, light blue with some

splotches of brilliant green and dark purple.

They cost something like ten dollars a pair.

Ten bucks can buy maybe six chicken breasts

so I only have one pair of cool socks.

I don’t wear my cool psychedelic socks

on the same day every week but today

worked out to be psychedelic socks day.

Today I’m wearing psychedelic socks.

At a grocery store south of Chicago

I’ll be shopping for groceries today, but

I’m gone to San Francisco in my mind.
