Ode to the Discarded

While sitting on the curb,

I see a rusty old bolt

laying on the pavement.

 

I pick it up,

turn it and feel its heft,

its cold edges,

My fingers

now stained orange.

 

I run fingertips

over threads

still sharp,

not stripped.

 

It once held

something together,

 

and still could.
