Safe Disposal

Tape up the sharp edges.

Gather the glass in a container.

Give the old prescriptions back to the pharmacy.

Electronics go to recycling.

Poop picked up and thrown away properly.

Only in the wilderness should things be left to go wild.

Our planet depends on us respecting it.

I’m Stinky

Overripe smells

emanate from under the shoulders.

Bathing would feel so good.

Except I turned on the dishwasher

and so have a conundrum.

Do I take a shower with intermittent hot/cold spurts

or can I withstand the stench

until it is my turn to bathe?
