Concession Speech at Recycling Bin

wondering what to do
with life, as if
it has just shown up

as if it were
this plasticy thing
in my hand
at the recycling bin
with the trash can
there next to it

maybe I’ll just be grateful
for a closeness
to my dreams
as I am for the sun’s
beaches, as I am

for the sky
and some women
I never talk to
