Potter, painter, candlestick maker

   I will not deny
   a complete iden-
   tification with
   the socks. I am
   not unknown for
   gray sweatsocks
   and I'll not al-
   low that renown
   to be marred by
   imitators, how-
   ever versatile.

   Smeared, I sup-
   pose; molded in
   all likelihood,
   but not disfig-
   ured, actually.

                         Too hot, too hot!
                         To mingle friend-
                         ship far is mingl-
                         ing bloods ..
