Recycled

by David R Spellman


There’s enough junk
in my mailbox
(the one the postman still fills)
to re-forest a desert,
to re-build the whole
Spanish Armada
and set it to sail
full of chopsticks
bound for China.
 
Promotional flyers,
political advertisements,
charity solicitations,
SALES! SALES! SALES!
sales on everything I
can’t possibly need;
and of course there’s
those monthly bills,
supply enough to
re-fill the bathroom roll – 
 
let me mark them
“Paid in Full.”
