Only good people compost. 

Take time to dispose of their food. 

To better the environment around them. 

They carefully examine their remains. 

Eyeing what can be used and what cannot,

They wish that all of it could be put to better use. 

Instead of sitting, untouched trash. 

Gravity sagging its contents down, 

Until it breaks.

I'm a black woman, a classically trained oboist, a self-taught composer, and an introspective poet trying to comprehend my thoughts.
