Remnants

© Matthew Word Bain

the colorful globe with cheerful polka dots
that used to grace the skyline above the coin laundry
must have come down years ago now
leaving only a slender stalk
to catch the sun
setting

I’ll be honest
searching for that globe
was one reason I chose to walk
this stretch of road
