Truck’s Valentine

When the roaring elephant
Garbage truck politician
Comes crashing down the street
Kitty-girl retreats to the garage
To the mockery of birds and shadows
Which she loves in ways
They don’t yet understand
It’s hard to educate a world
Though history keeps trying
Between the garbage and the cat
Escaping to you-know-where
A child is screaming
In the street for joy
At the massive truck
A cat is crouching in the dark
