The fifth poem from M. Sakran’s collection of poetry entitled First Try, published by eLectio Publishing, is below.  First Try is available here:


Garbage disposal

Water flows as carrots wash,
and outsides are rinsed clean.
The ends are cut and fall down,
with a knife that removes.
Then they are held away,
and the knife scraps away,
and the peel falls away,
in a powder of orange.
The water flows again,
the rest of the powder falls,
the carrots are set away,
and the powder is pushed down.
A switch is flipped,
and blades spin,
and the orange powder is gone.
