Tweed Jackets
What you're looking for
is not here.
An old man, wearing
a tweed jacket,
stands next a ditch
with it
tucked neatly in his sweating palm.

Seconds from now
it will slip
from his grip,
fall to the ground,
and shatter.
All that you've waited for
will have been lost forever,
yet in the back of your mind
you'll realize
that there will always be
tweed jackets.
