Fragment

You’re overdressed for recycling
in your long flowing skirt and stilettos,
smashing bottles from last night’s wild party

while in my sensible shoes I feed the paper bank
with ripped up shreds of poems
that could be about you


but thankfully aren’t.

very strange and original. Maybe it's just me but I find it kind of humorous!
