I am a bin man taking the trash

Loading up on peoples throw-outs

I seen my share of care

Fourteen cents and a dollar bill

In the back pocket of a pair of strides

And a full box of cigarillos on Tues-a-day

Tuesday afternoon with a stack o’Newsweek

That had been, hardly read

One ole’ woman wanted us to take her cat

It was dead, thats what she said

She cried when I said ‘No,

But that cat should be buried

My pay-check pays for my bills

Mose’ times but I ain’t no Leadbelly

I cane’ do nothin’ more than carry this trash

But I read the magazines when I get home.

I’ve been in the attic, I’ve been in the cellar, I raided my notebooks – I’M HAVING A YARD SALE – It’s a Car Boot – THEY’RE UNFINISHED LINES, unfinished poems, POEMS THAT MISSED OUT ON PREVIOUS RETROSPECTIVES, good ideas, maybe BAD IDEES, inspiration, OR JUST GOOD TITLES, MISFIRES, abortive attempts – IM CLEARING THE BACKLOG – opening up the the storehouse  – I’M MILKING THE PAPS – so mother writer’s milk might flow on through!
