Poem: Downsizing

July 24, 2018

Another box

flaps akimbo

reveals possessions

once thought

important enough

to save.

Time rots the rules. Yesterday’s treasures

grow into heaps marked “Donate”

“Recycle”

“Discard”

One box remains

a keeper

its contents

put back into use

or important enough

to save

until once again

time rots the rules.
