Atlas, Behind the Theatre: Dumpster, Hummingbird Centre

Atlas sits on the loading dock
filled with tatters, stocky, broken,
open topped, the trash within
all that’s known of business past.

Atlas greets the daily traffic
seething past the matinées
saying happiness can be dreamed
after stage and scene are trashed . . .
