A few months back I was sent (by Carin Makuz) a jpg of some random trash, all part of a project called The Litter I See (in support of Frontier College), and which promotes literacy and has, of course, an anti-trash objective as well. The image was of someone’s ‘new balance’ and the word ‘withdrawal’ was prominent. So I wrote a poem, a kind of numb, flat poem about a decision on the cusp for years.
You can find it here (or click the image):
Not sure if I’ve had a poem published before. Don’t think so.
