musty

shuffling through musty lace
was a bad idea for a blue Monday
so many tears
my stomach muscles ached
but there were smiles
captured
in tattered scrapbooks
rife with tickets and pressed flowers
I could not be swayed
from trying to hold something lovely

why did I keep the rusty rivet
next to the dancer in the box
velvet and chrome remembrances
folded next to faded streamers
carrying memory whiffs of cake

I have no gimmick
nothing for you to remember me by
unless you see me as a quilt
pieced together
from all I’ve touched
