I May As Well Be Invisible

by Laurie Benton
Originally published by on 13/11/2017

People ignore me. They walk past me all the time.

No one cares anymore. It is too much trouble to walk a step to the left or right. They pretend they don’t know what my purpose is.

My friend comes daily, out in all weathers, doing his job. I look forward to his visits. He drags his cart and uses his broom and shovel to sweep up all the rubbish that people have dropped. They litter our streets with no regard for our environment despite the fact that I, a made-for-purpose litter bin, am there within sight of them all.
