For Me?

I found it there on my way home

Tied with green nylon rope

Neatly knotted to a plastic drum

And two fathoms length further

Another, its side cut out, roughly trimmed

Where careless crabs might sidle in

I think it was meant

But then again, this fickle sea can be quite unkind

She probably had another buoy in mind
