Not consumption:

Shoes and handbags and bling

Are last decade’s thing


Not redemption:

The problem with being Catholic

Is that I don’t believe in sin

But connection

With people, events and places

Especially certain faces


But transaction

Of laughter, love and joy

With the universe and my boy-


Those, I can do.


This is written for One Shot Wednesday, part of the One Stop Poetry site.
