souvenirs

13 Feb

how long must i keep my

keepsakes?

how long must i save my

souvenirs?

they stuff up my drawers

drawing attention to times

long forgotten

why did i keep this movie stub?

or this handwritten note?

it meant something to me once

time cannot be held in the hand

everything, even that precious memory

becomes a blank wall

waiting for that fresh coat of paint
