Deckle-Edged Invitation

Day 5, PAD Challenge. Prompt: write a "serious" poem.

time to make hay while
the sun shines, or else (ah,
you'll wear dead men's clothes
yet) aged and hungry,

incline upside a wall, whilst
the banquet goes on
behind leaded windows, the
tickets, deckle-edged, some-

how missed your mail-
box, amongst the pleading
four-color advertisements, glossy-
sharp, great for bookmarks
