MOVING

Worn chairs with no seats cluster where

A mirror gives back a dull stare

At memories of other times.

As leather books are losing rhymes,

They tumble from a cardboard box

Where fossils hide, within grey rocks.

The dust of loss hangs on lost coats

As little dolls and tiny boats

Fall over yellow velvet chairs

As each of us packs up, prepares

To leave this place where he has sat,

Enduring frost and dark, and bat.

A stack of plates, cracked Staffordshire,

Is doomed. House sold, the end is here.
