Today I saw

Spray painted sheep. A JCB on top of the world.
Neatly wrapped sandwiches. Helpful bananas.
Old, borrowed, and brand new walking boots.
Wet weather gear. Sun hats. Woolly gloves.
Dogs in the sky. Ghosts on a train track.
Open eyes. The inside of clouds.
Nothing but air and bones and Why not.
