A Grocery Cart

A grocery cart
is a constructive use
of metal holes
made small enough
to hold things in.

Our minds are probably
no different.
It’s just the holes
are much smaller,
and so is the merchandise.

Sometimes, it’s people
who push the carts,
and sometimes it’s nobody:
the wind. A ghostly cart
just rolls across a parking lot

all by itself, like this poem

on its little haunted wheels

squeaking.  bitching.
