Lawns - Car Seat Headrest

December 27th: my dad walks in.
I was 18 y.
o.
He said "our trash can's blown over, the trash is all scattered across other people's lawns".
So I put on a jacket and I forgot my gloves.
We went outside.
It was cold as f_ck.
He gave me a trashcan, pointed across the street.
Our trash was everywhere.
So we went at it like an easter egg hunt.
Always more to be found.

The wind started blowing every time I took my hands out of my f_cking pockets.
Shove 'm back in again.
Bags from Kohl's and Target.
Different colored giftwrap + thousands of receipts.
I walked from lawn to lawn, I skipped the ones with fences and I grabbed all I could.
I waited on the sidewalk, for my dad I mean, but I couldn't find him.
He was nowhere to be seen.
