A Trunk to Call Home

Chloe Wertz, C’14

I am new here

Refuse to give up my shadow

House so tall I am out of place they say

They say “the tallest on the hill”

Underwriter types on the stack

It looms to be true

Schmooze and booze and pray

Paired with the right cardigan

This taint greets like a foil casserole

Welcome to the neighborhood tomatoes

Warm and holey

Eyes no ring but hands point

My language this perfect

Iggy Pop belly top

I am not an outrageous

stay-at-home vixen

Just a mid-level professional

Top and all

Family will not visit no cookouts here

This is how I build a life

Dark, shaped by light,

Voted bearer of the street’s most admired torso
