I like the spirals on your shirt. I like how they spin when you walk, how they dance when you talk.
I like how you style yourself so we look right at them.
But I hate that when I look, the spirals are in my eyes, too.
And in my eyes, you have to look hard to see them. And I hate that too, because less is more.

I’ve made up my mind
But you’re wearing stripes, and if you look closely,
The spirals are still there.
