Today’s Short #Poem 004

I’ve always had a compost heap
ever since I read Colin Wilson
who said, the brain’s biggest
failing is that it doesn’t have
a dustbin, and I said,
there are no dustbins

Animal lives in my drains,
eats rats, bathes in washing-up
water, waits for coffee grounds
to be swilled down the sink

I tried composting coffee grounds
but they got all sticky
so now I tip them away –
no one’s perfect
