Zigzagging Strings

The very last item he tried to pack

Was his fringed plaid corduroy bathrobe.

When his suitcase wouldn’t close,

He shrewdly knotted his shoelace collection

Into a confusing array of zigzagging strings

Which would serve as a hammock

As well as an expandable clothes bag.

Even better, with enough hot water,

He might shrink the sagging net into

A watertight shoelace Quonset hut.
