that’s his boot. like a dip in white.
they were dirty once. not the boots, the gloves.
on the kitchen floor. in our first apartment.
his gloves were dirty. and big for him. he was small then.
but his gloves were big for him. looked silly. like his boots.
tail is a grey, though. no white on the tail.
white on his chest, though. like a jacket.
no tie, though.
just boots. jacket. and gloves.
