Compulsory Intrusion

 dustcart

Today the dustcart came

Reversing into the cul-de-sac

Of life’s memories

They arrived and emptied

The bins of past actions

Family items and general dirt

Leaving space for a future to come

Lingering long they cluttered

The confusion in my head

But the noise soon went

Leaving me again alone

To gather the discards

Of life across another year
