A familiar mug.

Not a tea cup. 
A sturdy arm.
Old boyfriend
threw it away.
Kids blamed
missing toys
on Tidy Bob.
"Tossed shit
on trash day"
Sneak stuff
out when the 
truck comes.
Miss that mug.
Our Halloween
decorations sit
in a landfill.
Breaking down
compost into
sunflowers in 
a new vase. 

sunflowers purple walls
Missing graveyard Dublin
graveyard hydrangeas
bridge to past
burned motor home
burned motor home

coffee mug
