Drop Box

How well does it work?
How well do any
Drop boxes function?

You’re only supposed
To drop a certain class
Of items in each,

Mail, suggestions, cash,
Library books, gifts,
Holter monitors

(In the present case),
But they’re accepting
And hollow, tempting

To the sort of punk
With a wad of gum,
A handful of trash,

And the point of them
Is that they don’t need
Constant attending.

Come to think of it
Your average poem
Is one for meanings.
