Like half a piece of July
on a girl’s barrette.
Would have bent double
in the drawer when whisked
with the other outcasts, the ones
who assume a distinct shape
and configuration when
used accordingly.
Could be a fortune told by
the lines of woven cotton.
Could be a crescent moon
or a miniature sphinx.
Could be a forced smile.

An early version of “Enigma of Socks” first appeared in The Blotter Magazine, December 2009. It was collected in the author’s out-of-print poetry collection, A Roomful of Machines (Searle Publishing, 2010).
