Tanis Franco: one poem

SAILOR GARBAGE

What garbage you are.
What garbage
you are.
What simmering garbage.
 
What are you
simmering
garbage?
 
Here are the things that are eternal:
1. Garbage
2. Others
 
I’ll become a guardian
of garbage.
A sailor senshi
of trash
and light.
 
Her planet of
blue and black
clear and green
bags
glinting.
 
She accepts this trash,
this leftover space debris
and protects it
for as long as it wishes to remain.
