Ode to a Blue Jean Jacket (poem)

Amazingly, I found a poem I wrote in 87, possibly earlier, dedicated to my favorite 80’s attire, the blue jean jacket. I actually had a spring/fall denim and a winter denim. Ah those were the days. Anyway, it’s a possitive poem, not negative or dark. Surprised?

Ode to a Blue Jean Jacket

My friend you are there
In rain, sleet or snow.
Summertime is near.
Sadly meaning your time to go.

You were a shadow and a symbol
Following me everywhere.
You have a style about you
That was acceptable to wear.

Our parting shall be brief,
In three months we shall see
Changes have been made
But you’ll always stay with me.

  1. Ron, this was awesome. It took me back to my collection of jean jackets. I had so many. A cropped guess jean jacket, an acid washed jean jacket, a stonewashed levi’s jean jacket and a perfectly faded one that I wore to every Kiss concert I ever went to. I will have to see if I can dig up the pictures of me wearing it and post them. I also had a friend who had an amazing winter jean jacket, acid washed awesomeness. Oh, the days of jean jacket goodness. What a nice poem.
