My step father said I looked like “old money”.

That was me in a white suit and skirt.

I don’t wear white all that much anymore.

You can’t worry about going to a laundromat

after leaving your washer and dryer behind in the last move.

Once you lose that upper middle class status and become

a pay check to paycheck Mother, your kids wear denim and cotton.

The privileged have the Nanny do their braids.
