I've been staring at a sad unused weight bench across the street for over four years now. It's desperate sadness called out to me, inspiring this brief poem. If only my neighbor could also hear the lonely desperation of this poor unloved piece of fitness equipment....

This is wonderful humor, Vanessa. I do understand your take on this daily joke you see...

sounds like a lovely piece of yard sculpture with a touch of rust for that natural look :)
