April 2021 PAD #06 coffee (and hot pie) people

the waste is piled
one hundred cups
high

and overflowing

a man in a yellow jacket
with a blue stripe
crossways
pulls on
industrial gloves

reaches in
to push
and poke
and
re-arrange

there has been
a festival

a huge crowd
of coffee-people

take-away empties
and hot-pie
paper bags

so he drags
the overflow
away
to make new room

changes
full and fly
to fresh
and empty

ready
for another day

more coffee cup people
and hot pie
paper bags
