My mind is like a giant dresser
  with thoughts and feelings stored

Some are for later and some for now
  each in its own drawer

New thoughts are folded flat and crisp
  but new feelings loosely thrown

In the bottom drawer to lie together
  —time there long outgrown

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2018)
