The Persistence of Plastic


Moved past the plastic stage

of bedroom development.

White plastic dresser


White wooden dresser.


our financial outlook has improved

and so we reflect it

in furniture.


One day maybe wood

can be replaced

with earth.

I can build it

with my own hands.

Our clothes will not stay

as clean.

Which would be fine

for a while

then not fine at all.

We could always

place a plastic lining,

a thin lining,

along the contours of our earthen dresser.

A very thin layer,

to show we are sophisticated

and highly evolved.
