Length

Here’s your receipt madam
Look it has lengthen it has overgrown like a desperate tree on death row
It slides down to meet the skirt of your vintage dress and then down to your pure leather shoes
Maybe if we grow it long enough we can cut it up and our grandchildren will use the back of it to
Solve equations on what will be the last writing materials on earth.
