Things Found in a Dragons Nest

Teddy Bear regrets left out in the rain for good. All that collects in a corner of a neglected life. A father’s tobacco tin where a Swiss Army knife sharpens itself. A novelty pen, turn it upside down, the clothes fall off a lady inside - but no longer. A chrome implement for opening cans of worms. Broken struts and beam for building fledgling affairs. Old love-letters masquerading as moths. The dragon accumulates; it’s nest a horde of collateral waste, but like all those of its kind it loves the hopelessly lost.
