Lent Begins

yesterday's treasures
today's useless trinkets
Mardi Gras throws

concrete pillow
sleeping teenager
at the park

last year's palms
burned to ashes
mortality reminder

That middle one is fantastic. Reminds me of the days when I could sleep anywhere.

misread that line about 'palms' - first read it as 'psalms' ... but then thought, hang on, that makes a kind of sense too
