I saw them from a distance and thought,
"My gosh, now what are those?"
Pachyderms or big balloons tethered to the ground.
I detoured across a grassy path to get a better look,
And what I saw amazed me, eight red snails enormous, round.
Public art from Italy, regenerated plastic
Has made its way to Central Park
Indeed! This is fantastic.
