#NewSeries: Dialogues on Waste: Launched October 2nd 2020

What if your trash could talk?

From the worn out sneakers that ran marathons,

To the tubes that held lavender infused body wash,

From the empty bottles of beverages that tell tales of the midnight’s woes,

To the printer, that wouldn’t print any love stories,

From the strings that could not tie,

To the mirror that broke hearts,

From the clock that could not heal,

To the chocolate wrapper that  could no longer aid your sinful pursuits

But what about the mattress, your favourite dress, the special toy…

Does one ever pause to ponder,

Of the journey of your trash?

– Pinky Chandran
