the things this dumpster mattress has seen,
heard, experienced…she’s got some stories, man
there was that marathon night of nine times —
she lost a little bounce after that…
she’s been moved all over the place,
from apartment to apartment,
squeezed through doorways,
dragged across pavement,
laid up sideways for hours in that sketchy truck
you borrowed from your cousin…
this dumpster mattress has been through it all —
the blood, the piss, the vomit,
