sentimentality

Cyber Garage Sale

when i start getting rid of things,
i keep some more that i shouldn’t:

like when i say i will throw a box
of letters away, i end up keeping
the box and then what’s inside;

like when i say i will give my yellow
books away, i end up covering
them with all-new, shiny garb;

like when i say i will put my old
clothes away, i end up wearing them
for the last time to relive the then;

when i start getting rid of things,
they cling to me, and i oblige.

    1. Yes, some people have to let go of stuff to help others, and perhaps start with letting go a bit of themselves. The need of others and our love for them must compel us to do so… Thanks for your thoughts.
