The Story of Rebirth

By Brynn Simon

Paper, plastic, cans,

and bottles.

A green bin in

every room

that is made

to save the world.

Reduce waste, recycle

the recyclables.

Giving the gift of

reincarnation to

your bottle of

caffine-free Arizona iced tea.

But the half eaten

sandwhich that got

thrown out because you

don’t really like tuna

all that much

lands in the arrow marked bin.

Because in reality

We just have two trash cans.
