emptying the refrigerator

it's completely full
of food from Christmas, New Years,
even Thanksgiving in the very back
behind the wilted celery in a plastic bag.
mashed potatoes, left over gravy,
lasagna, rice, a half eaten chicken,
a single carrot.
it will all go into the big compost
pile and reappear in my garden
next year
i hope the refrigerator will
be repopulated soon.
