The Trash Can

The Trash Can

A Poem by Victoria Chang

By the side of the wall

there it lies

something not-so-tall

don't notice the size

 

A peice of paper

expertly flies in

from the tray of the printer

a chair starts to spin

 

Watching the bucket like object

made of plastic, dark green

athough it's not perfect

from afar it's clean

 

As paper starts mounting

and the scatter is made

the wallet is opened

to get the maid paid

 

And that's a tale

that I want to share

about a green pail

that's nothing too rare

I like this it may be about a trash can but this is so cool. Have you ever thought about writing stories for kids because this does it sounds like it could be in a childs book. I don't want to make this sound weird but you literally give the trash can a life of its own. This is just to cute im adding it to my reading list...

Wow, this is lovely! The rhythm is very Robert Frost or Emily Dickenson, it's really very nice! The thing I love about it is that even though it's about a trash can but written with such beautiful words.

That's the first poem about a trash can that I wouldn't think of tossing in the trash can! Great!

Pretty ingenious, like painting a still life picture
with the attempt to rhyme to a flow and beat,


about a green pail

that's nothing too rare


Great one!!

The image of this is certainly one I believe we have all had experience with in some form or other as writers this image is like the icon of our species:(the writer). This piece would make a fantastic contender for the writing challenge on the Cloak and Dagger. I'll send you an invite. Classic image, here; excellent piece.
