Garbage Bag

By Ahmad Al-Khatat

Garbage Bag

My neighbor is a single woman
she only smiles when she is drunk
Or high from smoking marijuana
Everyday she throws a garbage bag
and every night a stranger comes to
her small apartment for sexual pleasure
Lately, she cries by the sunset
And weeps when she sees
the garbage truck picking her bags
One day, I asked her about her sorrow
she said that her garbage bag is not
filled with trash it is filled with abortions
