Lost Glove   

An abandoned black glove

The symbolism of its meaning clear

Like a warning from a stranger

Equal to a letter etched with ink

Three days the glove sat there

And then it fell to the floor

As if somehow it were losing strength

Seemingly down trodden, scuffed with dirt

The shiny black, now grey with dust

But this small amount of dust

Was waiting for nightfall to cover

This solitary glove

Until it was kicked into a corner

Where is would sleep for ever

powerless
