Shredding Dreams

Pull the envelopes
from the drawer
And open them to see:
bills, receipts
and unused checks
as tempting as can be.

Oh what I could do
with those credit card checks
if cashed
and not paid back.

I sigh as I stuff
them into the shredder
and press
the “On” switch.

I'm a philosopher, dreamer, poet, writer -- not necessarily in that order -- and I get to write it all down and share it with the world thanks to the Wonderful World Wide Web!
