The Pink Cape(R)
Intensify the early-morning moment a garbage
truck barrels down your street. Lift your arms
and wave fastidious, as if the city worker might
notice. A daunting task, rolling the trash can
behind the incinerator and trying to dump it in,
only to find your wife's pink robe collecting grins.
"Whatever works," you say, even though
it was an accident, your last-minute grab
of cover flying open like a cape.
