Cans

poetry

there’s no good reason you
can’t keep your whole life
in an aluminum can.

Mostly, things you can can
are really not worth canning,
while all the things you can’t can
need to be kept fresh in dry-
storage anyway.

But there’s still a few things that
need canning.

Make a bigger life,
get a bigger can.

  1. a couple years ago Weyland’s tiller broke.
    he went out the shed and the big can he keeps important papers in.
    he sent off some papers and got a new part for the tiller for free.
    the tiller he bought in the 70’s.
