In response to Leave Your Hat On at dVerse Poetics

A chosen hat
presides over
all those left behind
-discarded emotions
-buried animosity
-speechless grief
-rational thinking
-numbing frustration
-suppressed laughter
-unshed tears

A chosen hat
is just appropriate
not the best
its relevance
changes with time
No hat should see itself
as the Supremo
the tallest will be thrown away
Only the head knows
what it takes
to keep one on the head
