My Red Dotted-Swiss Fourth of July Dress

Red Dress dotted swiss

On one particular fourth of July
when a sparkler ignited my dress
daddy rolled me on the lawn
until all the fire was gone
and my most
favorite dress

was a mess

A hole in the skirt
where my thigh was burnt
and grass stains every which where
I would not change my dress
even under duress
no more sparklers for me
didn’t care

My mother patched up the hole
with fabric from the hem
I grew to love the grass stains
dotted-swiss goes well
with them
