Sun Glasses

Imagine a pair of sun-glasses set down on a sandy road.
Tyre treads in the sand. A yellow truck rolls right on over them.
The frames survive but the lenses fracture into thousands of tiny squares.
You put them on and see the world broken into pixels but still making sense.
If anything, looking better: enhanced. And the sun goes in and there’s
no more need for sun-glasses.

But you keep wearing them anyway.

    “And this you call your dance.”

  3. I like William's suggested addition but it rather does feel like a second punch line to a joke that doesn't need one.
