Bag in the Wind


In some film –

‘American Beauty’? –

there was this shot

of a plastic bag

caught in a circular air current –

up and round and down it went

up and round and so on

which I sort of liked

because it was an unusual shot

to concentrate on

and perhaps to give it much significance

(“life is just a plastic bag

blowing in the wind”)

would be a bit pretentious,

even ForrestGumpish

nevertheless I liked it enough

to take this shot

of a plastic bag

on a cobbled street

about to take off.
