it’s getting better

some family’s life
bagged up & twisty
tied waiting
for mr. dump

news is hopeful —
goldman sachs showed
a profit in quarter two

furtive kitty pokes over
flowing garbage

other banks
dependent on consumer
loans are not
doing so well

another day
collecting cans

whitehaired woman
at the cash register

elderly man
pushing carts

while goldman sachs is expected
to report even more billions
in third quarter profits
