coffee grounds

I remember the first time someone told me
to just throw my coffee grounds in the yard
I didn’t know what that meant
hovering over the trash can
my landlord asked for the french press
added some water
with a hearty swish and a toss
he launched it
onto the lawn

it was the first time
I really realized
that not everything I touch
is as dangerous
as me
