Undesirable elements of her past.


within the withered carcass of an old leather bag
a role of folded paper lay and hid
within the folds and pleats of the tongue she used to nag
a secret truth was unscrewing the lid
of the jar upon the dresser in the old holiday home
beside the bottle opener from Spain

and take away her privileges again.
within the withered carcass of an old leather bag
a role of folded paper lay and hid
a testament to what she meant
a testament of time she’d spent
she wished she hadn’t found it, but she did
