Maybe we forgot about trash,
how we made it and
used it and loved it;
I forgot about it for years and now
that the earth is caving in on itself
I can’t help but see it everywhere.
What else are we going to find
in the rubble but Pioneer Plants,
the adaptable ones,
holding up the sloping soil,
in it
with their human accomplices.
