With Diapers and Crinkled Cans

The poet Ezra Pound wrote a poem titled Statement of Being. Here, I share my own statement, this morning’s assurance that I am.

Statement of Being

The dew
that glistens
in the new
sun, cools

my bare feet
as I pull
the garbage
can, heavy

with diapers
and crinkled
soda cans,
across the lawn

to its spot
on the curb,
next to the rusty
mailbox.
