Closet

We have our own closet. Maybe that doesn’t impress
you, but if pressed, I’d be willing to share

a hanger. I should go through these clothes,
make a pile of shirts I never wear anymore

— what an effort. Aren’t closets to hide messes anyway?
Mine declared its ultimatum in carefully arranged polos

demanding closure. I’ve never been one to leave
things hanging.

For Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #125 : “ultimatum

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
