One and a half to go

Trying
to launch an appeal
for the year that
is dying,
nobody cares and
nobody wears
#black anymore.

first footing
at the door?
you won’t see that
anymore,
security you see is
the new twenty first
century

I see it in style
pork pie and a smile
the smell of twenty seventeen
still keen in my nostrils.
