The thrift shop crusader—
—metal straw sword,
tote bag shield—
battles to defend home
whilst you sit in the audience
Mother Earth’s death certificate: signed.
A pair of jeans and a tee requires a kilo of cotton.
A kilo of cotton requires 20,000 litres of water.
There is an ocean in your wardrobe
but you want the seven seas.
