safe deposit – January 25

1.22.2015

ranks of steel drawers

hold secrets and

stashings

 

car titles, bond clips,

passports and

files

 

maybe some dollars

or euros for

fleeing

 

all behind lockings

and two keys

same name.

 

a picture, a doily,

laced letters,

mementoes

 

the sacraments of lives

past yet loved still,

always.
