A Purposeful Wastebasket

By: Charles Gibson

An empty, circular-shaped metal object,
made to be a depository of waste,
resides alone in a vacant space absent
of inhabitants.
Ready for service, the rubbish bin is
alertly situated, lined with a thin
plastic sealant in hopes of one
day fulfilling its true purpose …
which is to provide an area of relief to
those transporting unwanted belongings.
