Love is a Bin


‘Wetherlite in Prado’ by Jay Cool

Love is a Bin

[A tribute to a lonely-green bin, viewed from a Prado window.]

A green bin,
super-sized,
groans,
as old lady swishes by
in
electric chair;
wheels loving
the
rain.

And old man, on
pavement over,
wheeled and
water-eeled –
follows on –
unknowing,
taking over.

Green bin,
super-sized
and still,
with wheels
rooted in
puddles,
bored,
groans.

A loving couple,
snuggled
up
under
super-sized red
brolly,
slip their way
past Prado.

Green bin
groans, as
in Prado –
still green in
Weatherlite raincoat,
I sit up
and

notice,

noticing it. The One. A green bin groaning –
a match.

A match
barred from me
by windows.
