as we fall

plastic bottles find no rest

in the surf

washed from the river

beach colored by paint

human paint remains of

eager sprees

in fearsome glow of night

youth and the silent in

alleys prowl,

fast food wrappers

catch the wind on

commercial sails

over street and bridge,

greasy window watches

those without reserve

intimate action

body abraded by brick

balloons of extinguished

seminal life cast to water,

outside as most slumber

patrol cars crawl

citations written to those

caught out,

they use with needle point

vacationing from life

and all it’s disturbances,

away now we trail

in part to the beach

all that is us comes here

slowly degrading

absorbed into sand,

trapped for future people

to see

how as a society we

fell far

    I am sure we as humans have fallen far, indeed! Trash everywhere as if earth were not a gift!
