Trash Day

The garbage can sits like an old man
at the psychologist’s office,
filled till brimming,
and that old trash collector of a doctor
lifts that man off his curb
with a question as defined
as Mr. Universe’s forearm;
shakes him up a bit
and leaves him lying listless—
a hollowed and humbled receptacle.
