"What She Was Wearing"

"What She Was Wearing" by Denver Butson from Illegible Address.

this is my suicide dress
she told him
I only wear it on days
when I'm afraid
I might kill myself
if I don't wear it
you've been wearing it
every day since we met

he said

and these are my arson gloves

so you don't set fire to something?

he asked
exactly

and this is my terrorism lipstick

my assault and battery eyeliner
my armed robbery boots

I'd like to undress you
he said
but would that make me an accomplice?

and today
she said I'm wearing
my infidelity underwear
so don't get any ideas

and she put on her nervous breakdown hat
and walked out the door

This poem made me laugh, I hope you laugh too.
