Walking towards home
Sidewalk puddle reflection
Asks for a portrait

Two highly warn refuse bins.

Resting garbage bins
How long must they wait today
No schedule in sight

Black and white tarps hanging on a stone wall.

Wall with black, white, black
Drooping drapes catch my eye now
What might this all mean

Dirty tarps in light and shadow.

Drop cloth light and shade
Becomes an abstract shadow
Haunting me today

Dirty canvas bags on the back of a garbage truck.

Twin garbage bags hang
Is there a hidden meaning
My eyes want the truth
