2015 -Lighten the Load

What do you hold on to?

to possess and label MINE?

-or ours

this stuff I shuffle

room to room

S-uffocating

T-hings

U-nder

F-oot

F-orever

I’d like to peel them all off -layer by layer- see them lift up

and float back to their source, my trunk, a store, a shelf,

stuffy crate, rusty boxcar, sewing machine, threads

careening, a farm, a branch, molecules of cotton…

Inhalation -consume

Exhalation -into a crowded space, all these collections

arranged by room

Pushing at the edges of empty space

All Elbows and feet Kicking

and looking for my “Sound of Music” across an open sky.
