patches

the government sent the
not so secret police

even the iron on patches
would not iron on. you broke out
super glue

the same you used
to affix the stick to
your flag

your rough
locks in fighting
formation

got your attitude
always

painted another layer
of enamel on your
claws

texted your friends
to meet under the
oak tree

don’t forget
knit hats the
masks the baking
soda
