Magpie Tales.12/29/10

She liked to drive very fast-

When I found these gloves on the floor
it threw me back
into her very low
very fast car...

I knew how soft the leather was
before even touching them

I wanted the rabbit fur
against my skin;

but not the tightness
that would encompass
my hands

then run up my arms
to my heart
and crush me.

The tightness of leather gloves can be intimidating. Great!

Oh, nice. I like the association with the fast car...and the too tightness of the glove and the love. :o)

I tried to sign up to follow, but it wouldn't have me. Apparently I'm too large!

Love the way your leather gloves are lined with fur.
Thanks for stopping by ... you are right about guarantees - leather gloves may hold the most promise. Happy new Year.

Rabbit fur lining - oh, yes! Contrast indeed to the crush of disaster - or despair?
