Division

In America we do not have classes.
We have collars. Blue. Or White.

Paul alters that binary choice
to voter and non-voter.

There are no visual cues to tell
which people are which.

Paul points out that the person
who complains too much does not vote.

It could be America is bracketed.
As in income brackets.

Money does not create barriers.
Lack of money creates barriers.

Paul once met a woman
and they really hit it off

until she wanted to have dinner in Paris.
He could not afford three Michelin stars.

Let alone the supersonic airfare.
Let alone a tux rental.
