Between Time

Written by: ilene bauer

We’re now in between time;
The closet’s in flux.
Dressing’s a problem
And clothing’s the crux.

Turtleneck? T-shirt?
Long pants or Capris?
Boots worn with tights
Or just socks to the knees?

Temp’s one day 80,
The next 52;
Sift through my dresser – 
Don’t know what to do.

Short-sleeved tops nestled
Near sweaters of wool.
Time for decisions;
The drawers are too full.

The closet has waiting
My jackets, some light.
Hard to tell which one
Will help me feel right.

Between time just happens
But doesn’t last long.
At least in the winter,
I won’t be dressed wrong!
