shake a leg, loose the past


when i drove up the steep
climb to your house
you never mentioned
the garbage.
that i had to walk by
to get to your door.
when are you going to
drop it?
the baggage a burden
lighten up the load
so we can dance;
clean on the floor
into the night
approach first light.
garbage out
step in.

  1. Interesting poem; I like how you open it. By the time it ends, it seems to have transitioned more deeply into the realm of metaphor. The poem also has an intriguing voice. Keep writing!
