 Discarded without a backward glance

Left drowning in an oily puddle
along with the other detritus
created only this day and already waste,
the crushed plastic bottle, the can, the wrapper.

Thrown away because it no longer serves
like youth, like love, like life.

  1. I am always saddened by litter too. The careless disregard. I remember the one photo I took in Venice. When viewed at home, there was a plastic bottle in the canal totally ruining my photo. Luckily Brian had taken a slightly different shot. To this day we refer to it as the image "without the bottle". *sigh*
