GARBAGE MAN
(1/17/13)


when
the work
becomes
overwhelming
I leave
the office
to walk around
the parking lot
for some
fresh air

fresh
attitude

there
is always
a trashy collection
of paper
and plastic
either blown
or dropped
around
our building

I pick up
what I can
since I'm out
there
anyway
and toss
the refuse
into our dumpster

I return
to my desk
a bit rejuvenated
to attend
to matters
of lesser
import
