Clearly Deserted #Tanka

 

What do you see #18Image Credit; Hoi An- Unsplash

The bike you see in this picture tells me quite a bit. This is what I see: Used perhaps by a poor tradesman to haul his tools from one job to another. It could belong to a homeless person as I can see a few stakes and a tarp. His tent perhaps. It may be weathered, rusty, and old but it is still quite functional to some.

 

Clearly Deserted

 

You used to ride me

when you were developing

now old and rusty

Left behind, clearly alone

holding all of your rubbish
