the picnic dress

the only dress i've made this summer, the only dress i've needed this summer.
ice cream socials, outdoor concerts, music festivals, sunday morning services,
sweaty hours in the hot sun or cold buildings, countless washings and ironings.
packed in suitcases and garment bags, worn with sandals and boots,
changed into in dressing rooms and dimly lit bathroom stalls,
hours and hours next to daisy and the banjo and my skin.
a summer dress,
adventure dress,
nice outfit,
performance duds,
in picnic red gingham.
the color of summer 2015.
