Cleaning, Attics And Basements - Poem by shimon weinroth

what are you sorting
memories divine and sublime
embodied by keep sakes
sugar-coated trivial and kitch

pricked by the bitch, called utility
cramped quaters and futility
cry out dispose, discard, cleanup
the yard, deny impulses of possess

those appetites of the mind
which once deposited affections
of reverence and honour into
keep sakes, charms and souveniers

now in retrospect seem to demean
cheapen the memory, the cloak of
senetementality wears a gown
diaphanous and transparent,

as time rolls around, i will be swayed
my sentiments have oer stayed
