Disillusionment

                by Jim Rapp

With an oil can and a shopping cart
two careless youths debauched
a parking lot at the shopping mart.
Why should it bother me so much?

A blacktop lot isn’t a work of art;
not even remotely attractive.
Can a plastic can and an unparked cart
befoul, in whole or in part,

an expanse of barren blacktop then?
It wasn’t the lot they deflowered, I guess;
instead, my esteem for them
was suddenly, and regretfully, less.
