found object, poetry 

highly elegiac poem printed on a poster stapled to a pole in Shoreline:

Reward If Found

Lost Boy, Lost Dog, Lost Bike, Lost Cat
Every corner stapled
To keep the paper flat
This splintered old pole has tasted
Scraps of hope
Efforts wasted
Never has it learned
Of vanished things being returned
A final sun-faded flake falls without pity
On the cement footprints of a long gone kitty
Air eats away at the rusty tack
Always remember
Somebody wanted you back
