Wawanosh Industries

that boy is young at
eighteen years of age,
mentally handicapped
but full of beautiful things
inside
his expression is sheer delight
grinning his wide grin
teeth showing so brightly
his buddies are shoulder to shoulder
cleaning out filthy bottles
all day
for a local oil refinery,
and he can still carry a tune

Richard L. Provencher 1980
