Mailboxes

Traveling down the street
I catch a glimpse
Of the aftermath of
Mischievous Troublemakers
Mailboxes their innocent victims

knocked off

smashed in


nailed back in place

or


duct-taped
too have fallen under,
given in to abuse
sturdy, ugly, plastic

mailboxes
but the admirable, the stubborn
without fail remain

they do not give in
continually replacing
the leftovers of
crime and adolescence

with dainty pieces of


cheap wood
which are at the least
pleasing
to the traveler's
eye.
