Just Things

Things

Just things

That’s all they are, just things

 

Little things

Big things

Mediocre things, just things

 

Date-marked things

Heart-shaped things

Well-worn things, just things

 

Electric things

Fabric things

Dormant things, just things

 

Living things

Loving things

Eternal things, just things

 

Boxes

Black bags

Full of things, things, things, things!

 

So, things

Yes, things

That’s all they are, just things

 

But pieces

Shattered pieces

Fractured pieces, are they more than just things?

 

Soiled pieces

Bitter pieces

Forgotten pieces, mere things?

 

Pieces to be gathered

Pieces to be salvaged

Will these ever be more than just things?

 

And we

We two

Are we more than just things?

 

Things that laugh

Things that cry

Things that crave more than just things

 

So leave me broken

Leave me brittle

But, please, leave me more than just

Things
