box of bliss


8 May 2022


box of bliss


hard cardboard box

packing tape shaped

inside

crumpled newspaper

plastic bags

cushion the space


therein, mementos

of a delicate life

souls, love-ripe

breeze-tossed leaves

golden sunset

cathartic release

ribcage full as

dissonance resolves

once long frustrated

now validated

a dream – it calls

my truth realized


all these realities

sacred to me

in my mind

I bundle safe

and keep

to peep

the next dark day
