Want It!
by Arlene Mandell

Fall fashion ads shout, but I don't
want torn skinny jeans for $250
I can distress mine for free.

Don't need a mid-thigh lamb coat
with pleated tuille inserts or suede stilts
draped in ropes of faux pearls.
A patchwork scarf and fleece jacket
from the LL Bean catalog will update
my wardrobe for walks in the dog park.

My must-have fashion accessory
–in tawny with wet nose–
Maxwell, the Golden Retriever.
