Writers’ Block Challenge #19

MIRROR

HOW DO I LOOK?

I turn this way, I turn that way
In this old-new black jacket.
Bought in a hurry the other day.
No time to try it
at the flee market.

HOW DO I LOOK?

Masculine look is in
Hmmm…
Trousers? Skirt to match?
Not feeling it is ME.

HOW DO I LOOK?

The sleeves are too long,
The colour is too stark,
The pockets are too deep.

How do I look!

HOW DO I L-O-O-K!

This is my first entry on the Writers’ Block Challenge.

Tis for now. Riihele xx

PS.
I feel that she is not sure at first if this coat is truly ‘her’

asking so very anxiously with every twirl on the mirror:

How do I look? How do I look?

Until finally she states with a hearty laughter:

How do I look!

Quite comical
– she comes to a conclusion with the exclamation mark –

in this far too large a jacket,
sleeves hanging way down on her dainty arms
barefoot and all – in fact, she looks hilarious!!

To me the jacket/coat looks like it is bought
second-hand and it looks so manly;
because if it was for a woman it would be more ‘fitted’.
More feminine in shape and style as well.
