December Lockdown, Ray Stearn

December Lockdown

 

A rustle of paper

Waiting for the bin men

But this is inside, not out

So I recycle my thoughts,

Pen them,

Wait

For the recycling lorry

To empty last week’s secrets,

Crush them,

Rebuild those secrets

Into new plans

Hopes dreams

 

For another week

Then, disappointed

Recycle them again

Vin blanc

In a blank van
