Buttoned-Up

I have been sifting through my old poetry and posting on my Poems Page, but, I didn’t want anyone to miss out, so I am posting this one on my main page. This poem is possibly from high-school. I have not been consistent in dating my work.

Reaching out
To a world of people
Buttoned-up
In their mother’s coats.

Strange
They seem to have

Been wearing
Their glasses backwards!

Or they would see
Why I reach out

Is only
To draw them near.
