detritus (poem)

This is a new poem.

a single leaf
in the middle of the corridor
lonely
and far from home

discarded duvet
in the street
wet
and muddy

a flattened can
in the middle of the road
crushed
beyond repair

items misplaced
and discarded

scattered scraps
isolate
seem to signify
more than they are
