Monetary Skirts

Skirts and money
in their rising.
The bigger the pile,
the higher the skirt.
The higher the skirt,
the bigger the eyes.
The bigger the eyes,
the lowering of the pile.
The lowering of the pile,
the lowering of the skirt.
The bottom of the pile,
the fleeing of the skirt.
So, “Goodbye skirt
and the her who was in it.”
