Ode to a cart

In this field you were felled

no more groceries to be held

but a cart to the last

even when days have passed.

So, is it still a shopping cart?  Or now that it has been cast aside is it something else.  It is too big to wear as a watch, but it can still act like a sundial.  It amazes me to think that long after I am gone from this earth, this plastic and metal monster will still be here.  It will end up in a landfill somewhere, and will be there until the sun goes supernova.  In my book that makes it still a cart.
