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!

About edenbray

I've always enjoyed writing and that is all I want to do... .. . I’m not sure why I ever stopped, was it 9/11? .. . Edenbray is born ugly, wet and covered in blood, mucous and bodily functions. The effluence of my short life .. . I am a Writer and Artist - since 1966 - I'm now an avid Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . I have published many of my poems in booklets ... please ask for details or just join the shebang by leaving me a marker with a 'like' or a comment for my ego and my encouragement :- thank you so much for listening ~ edenbray
