*POETRY WARNING* Sorting

Sorting

unloading

fighting to let go
dispersing attachments
rehoming my regrets

giving is selfish - said it over
and again like a mantra

it's best to disarm
let the stories speak for themselves
without talismans

let the metal and stone
recoup their identities, and yet

they fight back.
