In silence inside
I sit and listen as the debris
carrier picks up the bins outside,
I am grateful for this person.
I hope this debris is properly disposed
and not dropped in the ocean
of waste that we’ve already created.
I thought of burning everything
but what does that do to our air?
It seems the only solution is to use less
and to be very choosy about purchases.
Today is another day to earn wages
to be mathematical, to be alert of deals
which could land that big job.
Life is good.
My ‘new to me’ stationary bike
has helped start my day.
It will do so many days to come
and life will continue.
