Skelton’s “or” is crucial here, as it engenders potentialities with which meaning is ascertained. The poem deliberately avoids a fixed, stable representation. “Or” drives the poem into a liminal state in which representation is suspended, and meaning becomes a free-play of signifiers that point to realities as yet unachieved.”

I’m gonna claim a distinction between old people clothes (big comfy sweaters, patterned dinner jackets, warm cardigans, cat prints), and middle-aged clothes (flared/bootcut jeans, visible belts, tucked in button downs, sandals, those god awful polyester polo shirts, office-casual blouses, everything they sell at Old Navy)
