Your dresses in varied shades of blue and pink and red and green. Your fashion jewellery lying aclutter. Your cardigans in all imaginable colours. Your pink and blue sneakers. Your array of handbags. Your little container of vermilion, embellished with mirrors. My initials that you embroidered in blue on the edge of my handkerchief. The cute little red hearts with which you have decorated the closet. The yellow and red T-shirts that you got for me.

My staid business shirts and suits look at all of this, lying in the closet, and smile at the new and beautiful colours that you have added in my pinstriped life, both literally and otherwise.
