26 Gallon Trash Can May 29, 2006
I am a 26 gallon trash can.
Passivated aluminum, few feet tall, taking your unwanted emissions.
I’m shrouded in a protective cage.
Labelled with class, of your unwanted items that I’m willing to take.
I dot the edges of your streets.
Filled with yours, nonetheless, I’m considered the leftovers of society.
I am a source of nourishment for many.
Feeding your homeless, who you’ve rejected, scraps of little things sometimes sweet.
