all the trash cans get stolen

so people bag up their trash,

litter bags, pizza boxes, futon springs,

mb drive,  colonies of lone shoes,

and they throw it on the sidewalk

so if you happen to be walking

you get a whiff of everyone’s little whittled life.

It smells like government fingers and quiet hurts.

This is a concrete cell.
