Yardsale

June 2015

you bought us and loved us
like pieces of scared veiny porcelain or vintage barbie dolls.
your collectibles
found in somebody else’s yard
but yours—
for good measure and safe-keeping
(if the social worker approved).

I will bury myself beneath the paper-thin sheets of your choices
and live with your consequences.
