Comments about Tristan King
You Loved Them All
In compartments you kept them,
All your pretty things
Like toys kept in their boxes
Some still unwrapped
You had one favourite
that was kept in a special place,
away from all the others.
It was not to be spoken of, looked at
Because only it was your favorite.
You said you loved them all
Yet you loved not one.
