A Poem for iPhone Users in Cold Weather

I wrote this two winters ago… was reminded of it again this morning when it was chilly enough to put on gloves:

I was curled up by the Christmas tree with Oprah’s magazine
When there among her Favorite Stuff was a thing I’d never seen.
A pair of gloves for iPhone users—featuring a dot
Of rubber on the index finger… I cried, “They must be bought!”

But in my haste I threw that ‘zine on the recycle pile
And when I went to find those gloves, it took me quite a while.
I never did locate the things, despite some time with Google,
I searched and searched, and then gave up on that whole sad bon-doogle.

Until last night, when running errands, driving in the cold
I slipped my gloves on and discovered a gigantic hole.
I stared down at my pasty thumb, its wiggliness poked through,
And thought, “Aha! I’ve finally got my iPhone gloves! Woo-hoo!”


I also received some knit gloves last year from Mom that are kinda like this.

    Bought some of those today for Michael. Smart touch by isotoner. I passed on them bc I already have the kind with the mitten top and flips open to let you use your wriggly fingertips.
