second chances

did this ancient wagon
spokes broken
sunk into earth

become a photograph
a landscape
a compliment to nature

instead of a piece of
farm equipment hauling hay
field rocks
burlap bags of rye
seeds of survival

was it put out to pasture
to carry only stories
the burden of its history
with no wheels

without words
until now
