Perry Ellis

Of course I never met the man
he’s been gone for so long
yet I feel as if he knew me
or I should say my type.

And this knowledge passed
into the hands of designers
who knew this type and how
this person wanted to appear.

Yes, it’s all vain
but are we not all in our ways?
And if vanity is vice then
nobody else is harmed by it.

Better vices on display
then hidden self-righteously
an attitude that might prime
me for all manner of venality.
