Poem of the Week

Treasures

Green for a trove
of everyday objects
things you give no thought to
I’ve given much thought to
and maybe it takes
a special kind of fool
to envy a pen
a ring of keys
the tie you wore today
a special kind of fool
or maybe
just a girl
who would like to know
what it is to be
something
you reach for
run your fingers over
hold in the palm of your hand
