Plain White Shirt

Clean, just clean

with still a pump of savoir faire

blank and bright

and spotless until you bless it with a stain

almost always by accident

and then you’d wash it, separate

from the rest of the color palette

for they might touch it with their own hues

and when they do

it ain’t right to wear that white shirt again

but aren’t we sometimes like that

just like people

who change
