.black bag.

1.

i am a bin man & also a poet

some times

pondering

newton’s law & the strength of plastic

i drop the bag to test the theories

2.

i am the driver & watch him

glad the bag did not break

wonder at his thoughtfulness & isolation

should i report him or let him be?

we are late already

3.

i am the householder watching

i move forward smiling

pick up the bag

to help him

think it must be onerous employment

yet

nice to be out of doors

will remember a tip come christmas
