Recycle Bin

Painting by Max Coomer

Recycle Bin

thing growing in my brain this thing
this accumulation of flotsam tucked away
in the interstices of practical knowledge
and deflated dreams this dead end storage
of lost hopes unrequited loves
broken promises unpaid debts insults
dishonored contracts missed trains
and misunderstood words? What is this

You only go around once
and there is no delete button
