The cans rattle along behind
making almost as much noise
as the car that pulls them.
Two souls unite in the front seat
of a rusty bucket with wheels
taking them to their next stop.
With only $20 to her new name
and five more in recycled cans,
the two tally their worth.
Richer than most, these two are,
since their value is not in things,
but in the bond they made in this car.
