C'est Mon Ensemble

white shoelaces
a little too long
grazing the groung
muddy at the very ends
a little tattered

blue jeans

sleeves covering her palms

teenage girl
a little too sheltered
consorting with corruption
dipping in only her toes
a little weathered
a little worn

drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
