‘Cos litter is street too, yeah?

If a rose by any other
name would smell as sweet
can we make litter glitter with
a name that’s more “street”?
Rubbish, garbage and trash all sound
negative; petty.
Let’s big up our litter; call it
“Urban confetti”.

Hello, I saw your call for submissions on literaturetraining.com. Is it just for writers in Northamptonshire or can anyone submit work?
