a dealer in mens clothing
specifically hats
still so popular
a hat for each act

the opening act
in sports or career
and what style of hat
for the future’s seeker?

then the family act
more grounded and busy
too many roles and hats
that can make one dizzy

the act that follows another
can never be rehearsed
for the opportunities given
are from where we are immersed

a lifetime of choices
destination anyone’s guess
and blessed be those
who can now live with less

living hatless
