Shopping at L.L.Beans on a Thursday

not all petite lengths are the same
some drag on the ground
while others hang above my ankle bone
leaving my ankles bare

not all pants adhere to the same waist level
since some hang below your navel
while others hide your belly button
and some even seem to be a few
short inches below your arm pits

yet they all carry the same size label
different countries adhere
to their own size definitions

not all sleeve lengths end
at the ends of your wrist
some hang low enough to cover fingers
some are too short and leave hands
dangling as if they are
seeking something missing

this lack of similarity
this lack of consideration
sends me out of the store
willing to roll up my frayed cuffs
and wait for next year
