New Socks In The Overall Scheme Of Things

My new socks arrived today.

Six patterns, two pairs of each.

The Mayan apocalypse
is December twenty-first,
only a few weeks away.

I don’t think the world will end
or global culture will fall.

I just think winter will start.

But I always feel better
when I’m wearing argyle socks
so if the Mayans were right
and this world passes away
and our spiritual self
migrates to another plane
where we don’t need shoes and socks
I will be in a good mood
for the transfiguration
and that might count for something.

If it’s just winter starting
my toes won’t be sticking out
and that counts for something, too.

Now I’m ready, come what may.

My new socks arrived today.
