I packed a duffle of cashmere sweaters
Down jackets
Sweatshirts
Sweatpants
Warm things for cold people
People who had lost theirs.

Lets give it to that church
I said
Lets volunteer
I said
Lets warm our hearts
By giving back.

Silence, its whats for breakfast.

Not the only red flag.
I gave it all to
Good Will
But kept the bag.

That duffle is cool
Supply Sergeant original
Serious black canvas
Four foot long
Gold zipper
That says
Don’t fuck with me.

I like looking at it
But now it stares back
Asking if I’d like to
Get inside.
