Coat Conscious


 

Coat of arms
Coated tongue
Raincoat
prophylactic
protects against more than rain

Winter coat
Hand me down coat
coat of many colors
Appalachian poverty
turned into a Christmas Special
entertainment for the masses

Old coat
torn coat
Coat stuffed with newspapers
protection against the cold
on a New York sidewalk

No coat
Coated tongue
no medicine
no bed

 

This is just a rambling stream of consciousness poem that I hope reminds you to think about coats. Think about how blessed you are to have a coat and about everyone who is cold and without a coat this winter. I hope you will donate coats, scarves, gloves, socks, and other warm clothing to your local homeless shelter. Or you can join the #scrapgan movement and make scarves, blankets, etc. and give them out to people who need them. 

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday and Just Jot It January is: “coat.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Did you see this?

Thanks for the poem. Made me think about old coats in my closet that could be better used by someone.
