Poem - Tomato Boxes
I miss the old tomato boxes
great for lighting the fire, easily broken
or stacking with papers of less significant importance
peeping in at them to see their humour
something from the tv licence people, good luck with that
or her majesty's revenue commissioners
junk mail from the jesus freaks
kept just to ridicule in moment like this
and christmas, birthday and Other cards
to remind oneself of that instant of delivery
the perhaps green or red or white envelope
trembling to be opened
the tomato box pining for company
the poet smug in a world yet alive
all around a successful partnership
human and humble tomato box
destroyed by simply cardboard
