How It Has to Work

On the ground
in the parking lot
I see
a bottle cap, crushed
a piece of wire, oxidized
a brand new bolt, shiny.
I pick them up put them in my pocket take them home
Just trash, you say, but I say
No
We have an arrangement and the arrangement is
that after someone went to the trouble to make these things
sell them
use them
damage them
wear them out
throw them out,
it’s that I come along and
pick them up put them in my pocket take them home.
