Dump Truck

I am a bit of a garbage picker and while waiting in the rain along a side street a big pile of recycleables caught my eye. The pile was in an alley at the back of a corner grocery store. The cardboard boxes were flattened and neatly piled, awaiting pick-up. Proudly perched atop a box, despite the rain, was a soggy little cardboard truck with all the features – side mirrors, grill, headlights, wheels and doors. It made me smile to think this simple cardboard box had a journey far greater than any cardboard box could ever hope for.
