POEM: taking stock

taking stock

a chair cushion
with no frame

an inflatable bed
in an otherwise
empty room

stink bug under
a plastic cup
released back
into the wild

the trash goes
in a series of
grocery store
shopping bags
under the sink

a surprising
uniform shirt
hangs next to
black pants

signs of an-
other un-
expected turn

of events in
a life full of them
