A leather bound journal
for all its dirt and dust and decay
appears suitable for recovering whatever’s inside
crack it open to find
a foundation for pressed flowers,
worried corners of dreams,
faded photos of smiling faces, and
inked words crisscrossed with
sudden bursts of self doubt.
A record of ramblings and remembrance.
