RUBBISH SYNC
(1/2/2016)


I am
awakened
early

way
too early

by the sound
of a neighbor
heavily rolling
trash and recycle
containers
to the curb

I get up

get ready
for work

grab
the last
of my throwaways
from the kitchen
as I leave
for the day

deposit them
in their respective
receptacles

receptacles
which I had placed
in their proper
positions
the night before

so as NOT
to wake anyone
unnecessarily
this morning

as I
back out
of the driveway
my rear bumper
is almost ripped
away
by the refuse
truck
racing by

it is
Trash Day

Trash Day
indeed
