Dressing for the Ever After
The Most Important Fashion Choice You’ll Ever Make
When it’s your time and you’re laid to rest
all gussied up in your church-going best,
is this the way you are stuck always dressed
in the Kingdom of Ever After?
And if cremation’s the route you chose,
does Peter notice you’re not wearing clothes?
Is that why Catholics turn up their nose
at burning? To spare one the laughter?
My Sunday garb is woefully tight.
My birthday suit’s now a frightening sight.
It’s comfort I want when I enter the light.
Am I overthinking this? Still . . .
it’s not a choice I’ll entrust to chance.
I’m picking out my clothes in advance—
a soft cotton top, a loose pair of pants—
and I’m highlighting this in my Will.
