Simply thousands of polycarbonate sheets
bulletproof as a piece of glass
with concrete layers of plastic
reflecting a shiny green tint.
A recognizable specimen on the left
and an expiration date to the right
next to the place of my first stutter
and first footprint.
Frozen with the alpha and the omega
of a permanent temporary residence
with the Statue of Liberty shining through
and beneath my fingerprint.
Simply a numbered paper shovel
covered in iron butter
with a red, white, blue scent
kinda like peppermint.
