The True Story of My Floppy Green Hat

Walking into York along Bootham Road, I stop to put my jacket on. Seven hours later on my way back to the B&B, I see my hat atop a fence spike near a plaque pointing out the birthplace of W.H. Auden. I crumple up the hat and put it into my jacket pocket, feeling guilty because I've never cared much for Auden's poetry. It's time to buy a new hat.
