Style takes more than exclusivity
of price, place, and proportions -
Just as your clothes don't desire me,
I reject their required contortions.
I prefer upcycled, vintage, handmade,
(things rarer than your rustic khakis)
uniqueness no eyes can evade,
sophisticated sparkle at ease.
The thin 'rich' kids can keep you,
I've got my imagination -
Some may stick to your styles like glue,
but I'll make, mix, and match my own creation.

Some stores don't make clothes for women my size,
but I think thinking that makes them special is a guise.
