Usefulness--a poem by E. L. Walker

My travels were far and near
to the grocery
to the park
to vacations at the beach

Now I'm stuck on the side of the road
a discard
a sad and broken
forgotten one

Just now someone stopped when they saw
me

In their mind I'm a pair of new sandals
an earth ship
a tire swing
a garden planter

maybe

maybe
