Psychological Responses to Fabric

I am surprised by the excessive amount of polyester in stores these days. Women’s shirts are dominated by polyester (at least those under $80). I carelessly purchased a poly shirt or two only to quickly realize that I cannot wear them. Wearing poly make me feel as though I am suffocating and I start to [...]

Benefit of the doubt

Benefit and doubt are conversely related. As doubt increases, benefit seems to decline.

Grey and vascular my old companion is stripped naked the crowd around him, vainly dressed, flutters with mockery he looks exhausted, bent, leaning still standing tallest yet the wind robs him mute
