Spring Cleaning

It’s important to put things in
the trash. Otherwise wherever
you are becomes just another
hub of advertising for the things
you’ve already bought.
Those empty beer cans
and pizza boxes on the coffee
table are a times square
of your own making.
Maybe there’s some kind
of cleaning to be done?
We should start in our homes
with all the shit built up
in spare rooms like clogged arteries.
Maybe once we have some space back
we can turn our attention inside
where we haven’t been for far
too long it seems.
We can clear out all the bad ideas
like rust being sanded off the metal
parts of a boat, and maybe then
we could do something grand
beyond our time.
Like burn all our assumptions down
with the matches that we found
between the cushions
on the far end of the couch.
