"litter"

your picture was already
folding over in the wind
little pieces of Polaroid
that once made me shudder
now litter with a pretty face
a $500 dollar fine waiting
along the shoreline for the
next sucker to pick it up
have their way, and trash it.
your picture was already
folding over in the wind,
before I stopped my feet
when it finally occurred to me:
this wouldn't be the first time
you flew away indifferently.
