Garbage Elegy

Garbage Elegy 4/9

The large reflective bags
black - void
sing into the street

I know that song.

They are stacked - ready
to be taken to the dump
someone's dead things

Is it Bach?

In a stack of endings - this
is the saddest of them all
abandoned notes

It is.

I picture a child's piano
playing into everything
relentless -
