Tuesday, December 19


taking out the trash is hard
when the handle is broken and
the lid won't fit. the green plastic
brittle bit container is a pain
to haul all the way from the side
of the house out
to the urban curb, losing bits
of crumbled paper all the way,
all the driveway way.

running back to pick up trash
i bend down, and up
goes my middle-aged ass and i think this is the last
time this can goes to the curb and i search
my head, wondering what else i need
from the Home Depot, Wal Mart, Giant Eagle Grocery

walking home
down my considerable driveway just
in time to see a light go out
and i hold my car keys in my pocket
