THE TEE SHIRT

Under my pillow
during the day…
that was where
it did stay

At night it was spent
… cradled there in my arms
praying with me…
God… keep him from harms

Scented…
with cologne
I never washed it
… lest the smell be gone

I remember the scent
of Jade East
still lingering
… long after he went

He does not wear
… that kind of cologne anymore
I am glad because
its scent is reminiscent of war…
