The fashionable gleaming green is gone

How do we explain to the salesman

Fast fashion fibers quickly swim into dawn

Run out of nylon? Don’t fret upon

Washing plastic clothes is where it began

The fashionable gleaming green is gone

Is this the price one pays to strut rayon?

Debris slithers and shocks the crustacean

Fast fashion fibers quickly swim into dawn

A strand of blankie, the guppy slips on

turns noose-like, choking her inner organ

The fashionable gleaming green is gone

How does one explain accumulation

Of microfibers in the vast ocean

Fast fashion fibers quickly swim into dawn

If I am the fruit of my consumption

Am I partly, strands of a cardigan?

The fashionable gleaming green is gone

Fast fashion fibers quickly swim into dawn
