so sad

on the morning after christmas
it begins.
the rejected, still green,
still redolent of pine forests
lean, forlorn, against mailboxes and
lamp posts. after new year's eve
companions join them,
they rest three and four deep
in front of apartment buildings
and poke from garbage cans,
some clothed in white plastic
more naked to the cold.

  1. Yes, it is very sad to see these trees wasted!

  2. Around here we have a pick up that the city does. Then they chip up the tree and sale it to gardeners. The money helps many of the city programs.
