Seen and Not Heard In the Park

Dirty, disabled and abandoned
they poked out from
a pile of dusty pine needles
and for some nonsensical reason,
I placed them in a zip lock bag,
as if they were a fragile cocoon
about to become a flying beauty
or a courtroom DNA sample
from a murder scene.
There’s no understanding,
most times,
as to why I do the things I do,
save the things I save,
but things, like people,
have their stories.
and if these battered,
one-eyed sunglasses could talk,
I bet they’d say more
than what they were good for,
on a sunny day in the park
