Blue Shed, Ohio



Lost a little, I found it just at dusk 

somewhere along Rt. 10 in northern Ohio:


an ordinary shed standing all by itself

in a nondescript vacant lot, its worn blue


boards inviting anyone’s surprise. For what

purpose could it have served? And who chose


to provide this detour into painted blueness

for a stray passerby, as if to say, Look?
