something new, something old today. it's a cloudy, bluesy day by the Bay.

objects found

objects found, let us suppose, are
objects discarded
perhaps lost, cavalierly tossed
momentarily forgotten, subsequently
mislaid, hidden, supposedly
never to be discovered
by bandits or strangers
dawdlers or lutheran boys
on a wednesday escapade

objects found were once adored
caressed or fetished
holding magicks and spells
were useful or tawdry
ribboned, or dusted, shiny
or flat
made of silver or plastic
but the eyes of an owner
can waver and wander
the heart can forget
waiting for tea
