Grunt Work

image

A generator’s purr
removes crickets and cars
and a man with a back bum
tears up the landscape.

I watch small children dancing
without making a noise,
and chase after lifelike toys
that scamper around on twig legs.

Juxtaposed

Underneath, the river snakes by in silence –
happy, tranquil;
peaceful and undisturbed.

Above, a dustcart grumbles –
mute on plastic, paper,
glass and gum.
