I’m So Lucky

Just a few inches more and I would have been in the trash can.

THE TRASH CAN!

I never wanted to be part of a random heap –
Among discarded Starbucks.

No no…this is not right!
I am meant to become part of the earth, not trapped in a bag.
Why delay my decay any longer by lining us up in rows?
Please do me the favor of allowing me to become one with the soil again!

Liquidambar styraciflua

Others have charm, sweet taste
My skin too hard underfoot

A fruit called prickly – discarded!
or thrown by children for fun
