Time Zones

A time zone and an arc away
children climb on garbage .

The sunset casts its amber spray
children haul plastic bags.

Ladders from torchlights show the way
children trudge so hungry.

Recycling plant wraps up each day
children shed their burdens.

  1. i dunno…i find this a little mournful…only a time zone away, the children comb garbage for something to eat…a sobering thought….even among the beauty of the sunlight streaming…a true light and shadow…
