Dress for the SFMOMA

If you told visitors
to wear a uniform
they’d balk
but I observe
while seated with my journal
pencil jotting thoughts
that 9 out of 10
visitors that stop to view
the object on the wall
wear jeans
young, old
it doesn’t matter
clad in the attire of the day
they march by
with an air
of originality
