Plastic Sheeting and Jerrycans

entry picture

Blue plastic sheeting

you see it discarded

with the garbage.


They fight for them,

they are importent

plastic sheeting and jerrycans,

women scream and scratch

men vicious in their need

for the best of the

plastic sheeting.


They are importent,

for survival,

the sheeting to protect from

wind, sand, rain,

the jerrycans hold the families

precious water,

simple things, importent things

in the camps.

Thank you reminding us of the value of seemingly valueless things - I have visited some of these places and know the worth of an empty cola bottle
