On the Meaning of Disposable

dis-
pos-
able.

dis– means apart; pos– means to drop something; –able means giving or inclined to.
Disposable means inclined to be taken apart.

children crying
poopy diapers
a sick mother
these, not disposable


languished understandings
calming nights
soothed wounds
these, not disposable

Easy sex and flimsy conversations, cheap dinners with fancy makeup, another passing fancy
these are disposable


Christmastime singing
Easter prayers
happy birthdays with banners and balloons

wrestled problems
determined hope
eased frustrations

gardens
flowers
vegetables

laughing
beaches
love…
