Tuck: Super Short Story (226)

Super Short Story (226): Tuck

As a boy, he got tired
of continually being asked
to tuck in his shirt neatly.
He prefers to ‘tuck out’, just as neatly.

Because… If you tuck in,
it’s possible to be untidily untucked accidentally,
while it’s harder to be untidily tucked in accidentally,
if you already tucked out.

Then again, style is
whatever you make out of whatever.
Even an untidy half-tucked
can look kind of neat.
