contemporary artifacts

strewn everywhere

reflections

2012.

broken dark brown

beer bottles

crushed over time

or school children's

footsteps

small chunks

for miles

(broken dreams repeated?).

 

shards of black cassette

discarded technology

(secret messages evaporated).

 

now scratched CD

faded

(no longer top ten)

 

cell phone Spanish instruction

manual

bleached by the sun

(disintegrating quickly).

smart phone face

cover

orange dirt added.

super energy drink

oversized can

crushed

(overworked adrenals).

 

unending plastic

empty bottles

all sizes

wind puffed bags

junk food wrappers

(overworked adrenals).
