For Her, Who Has Nothing To Fall Back On by Jina Bae

for Seungoen

Betsey Johnson,
she said,
my beloved friend gave me this bag
made by who called
Betsey Johnson
one in the soho
in a low rise dutch style brownstone
made up with black scaffolding awning
stuffed with fishnets, laces, leathers, rainbows and jewels
watched and tended carefully by kind and rigid workers
whose boss
whom i saw on the television up on the wall of the store
in her pink wig, horsing around
on a runway show
in her body suit that revealed the wrinkles and sags
after all the models catwalked by
i said,
between you and her.
