Cans

The man entered the bus

Carrying a giant green trash bag

It was full

When he walked

The bag smacked against the ground

A familiar sound echoed in my ears

But I’d never heard it that loud

I wondered how much money that bag held

In aluminum cans

When he exited

He said, “God bless you” to no one in particular

A lesson learned
