Alexander Pepple: Thread Count

No thread-(ac)counting expert
need brand it low for jeans
from Goodwill stores’ excess dirt-
cheap racks—low like the greens
I used to claim my first.

It has endured for years
suggesting that its Dior
logo is real. But tears
of late are crackling more
to leans, and squats bring jeers

(or leers?) at butt-end lobes.
Although some love jeans tattered,
delight in their wardrobes’
disorder’s far from splattered
threads baring saggy globes.
