Button-down Shirt

Two ways to take it off.
Pull it up over your head
if you’re in a rush—
if you’ve just gotta have
that bare chest on parade.

Or, take it off slowly:
from the top down,
button by button—
if you’re a bit tired,
if you’d be so kind
as to massage
the muscles
of method and time.

There is no third way
because two is enough.
