Walt Whitman Deluxe Baby Doll T-Shirt


Walt Whitman Deluxe Baby Doll T-Shirt

O Poet, My Poet

I celebrate myself
And what I wear you shall wear,
For every T-shirt belonging to me as good belongs to you.
What is it then between us?
Whatever it is, it avails not—distance avails not, and place avails not—
Order soon this all-cotton wrap of self,
the very visage of us,

To arrive safely, on your doorstep,
where late the lilacs last bloom'd.
