I dont have anything new
to offer you.
The earth has been moved for you already
by  several pieces of plant
on temporary rental.
These JCBs
were tough, robust
not sentimental
lifted much soil
and their gleaming hydraulics
were a requirement
not an attraction.

I’m a kid’s wheelbarrow
by comparison,
no brakehorsepower
and very little traction
even in action
which I am now
but rarely

barely had I reached
my prime
when they started saying
you’ve reached the end
of your earthmoving time.

Bulldozers don’t get put out to stud.
they get left in the mud a few years
then scrapped or broken up for parts

have the biggest
but they’re
often overgrown with weeds
which is not
what the customer needs.
