Sweepings -- Titters & tatters -- Odds & ends -- Willy-nilly -- Residue.
In this collection of eighty-four poems, beloved poet Naomi Shihab Nye delves into mountains of trash -- along the highways, on the beaches, in the playground, floating through the air and sea -- to illuminate essential truths and inspire. Rubbish, refuse, waste, litter,garbage, dregs, scum, debris, junk, drass, detritus... there are a lot of words for what we castaways. Trash tells its story -- especially if you listen. Trash sends a warning -- a plea for help, a call to action. Deeply moving, often humorous, richly inventive, and always provocative, Cast Away includes poems about food wrappers, lost mittens, plastic straws,refugee children, trashy talk, homework, community, the planet, immigration, time, junk mail... all that we carry and all that we cast way.
