crumbled and rolled

Clickable, kissable
Indismissable
Crude, lewd, and barely permissible

Consider the envelope pushed
like so much curled paper
swept aside after a parade,

Straw wrappers blowing across patios
emptied of all but weeds and cigarette butts,
scraps of blown-out tires, flattened aluminum cans,
plastic tumbleweeds,

Accumulating outside like snow
While we bask in the sedative glow.
