    I was drawn to the title of this poem, I wondered what I might find for information.I was surprised to see the seemingly silly focus on the woman’s clothing during this horrific life event. But yet, I then thought about times in my own life where something important might be going on yet I catch myself thinking about the most unimportant things. Perhaps this is human nature in that at a point where we have no control maybe it is safest to let our minds ponder the tiniest details to keep our minds in tack.
