Trash: A Flash Friday 55 Post

fistfuls of hair from shower drain
chewed up wads of gum
take out box never claimed
loads of swept up crumbs
chicken bones, Christmas wrap
dried-up apple cores
moldy bread, mysterious crap
towels used for spills on floors
dryer lint, vacuum dust
shards of shattered glass
bits of pizza crusts
‘tis what’s in my trash


If word count would have allowed, 
I would have prefaced this piece with the following:

“one’s trash, another’s treasure”
so said G to me
I, with great pleasure,
present my trash to thee:

I'm reminded of Shel Silverstein's great trashy poem, "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout would not take the garbage out."

Sue said...

Great job, Polly. Your "trash" gave me no small amount of pleasure today! And it definitely qualified as treasure...

Those contents could form the basis of a great story about your previous day or two...
Good 55!

I'd best be careful what I say from now on. My quips could end up on a T-Shirt!!!

Urgh. Sounds awfully like mine. We humans are quite disgusting really, aren't we?

Interesting trash you have there.

Unknown Mami said...

I'm amused that you can make poetry out of your trash.
