garbage bloom

Trash basement
Drum kit surrounded by a field of garbage
Hopping around when I pound my drum sticks
Disgusting mosh pit
Banana peels and cigarette butts; empty coffee cups
Dried soda sheltered by paper wads
Shattered wood pieces – discarded clothing
Beer bottles: both aluminum and glass
All of this is a garbage bloom
Elevating to the music the slam of my palms create
Breaking silence; forming a miracle-world audio-escape
Where this landfill doesn’t exist
