I Just Realized it Today

by Everlasting   Feb 9, 2020


I’m like a grocery’s cart being pushed
around a store

I’m being packed
with things I have no used for
to then be left empty
somewhere in a parking lot

I carry everything that I can possibly can
sometimes none
sometimes more

I’m a basket with holes
that people can easily see through
and I just realized it today

    Hi. *offers a polite wave*

    I like the uniqueness of your poems and this is no exception. A vessel that can carry things in. Not a box, rather a cage, trapping most, but not all. Those bits that fall through the holes are interesting. Did they escape or were they freed?

    The line "I carry everything that I can possibly can" is curious to me. It may be a typo, but knowing you, it could also be meant?
    Either way, it's always nice to read you.

    We live near a supermarket. We also live near a creek. It's a constant frustration that some people think its okay to push ones trolley into the creek, which is a haven for wildlife. I see too many of them discarded this way. Maybe that's how they will end up, upside down in a muddy creek? Lol

    Luce, loved this! Wow! I'm just absorbing this. You are much more than this grocery cart you compare yourself to.
