Unburdened

Dear dirty 
dump truck—I'm 
so much 
heavier that you!
Despite—

the tons
you're made 
to move (never 
mind the rusty 
ones you're made of) and
despite— 
your crust
of limestone
dust and mud-
flaps only a 
stiff sludge could suffer—
 
you
will never 
know the ponderous
capability of being
carried by another—of being 
filled
by emptiness—with huge 
and clumsy things
like dark 
and awkward
silences—or even
 
for that matter, just the bulk 
pleasure of 

spiting things
arbitrarily—
