Bag (a revision) by DjWhite

When it's done,

all that's left is what

I've carried

I'm an over looked

forgotten brown

oh  selfish  hedonist

you need me

and will find me



a State Store

at the end of check-out lines

smooth and flat.

My progenitors have been

gone for hundreds of years,

but, I'm still here

wasteful  wasted

dead as they are

dead as you

You won't remember me
and don't want too

So, cruel

your lessons learned,

narcissistic madness

such bankrupt morality

my creases looking

for God

yet you

stuff the Y
of my thighs

with fifths of  E & J

or sweaty cans of  211s

then leave
parts of me

under a Canal street bridge


men in the middle of winter




flapped up

against a neighbor's fence.
