Poetry

Spring Cleaning

They sit on my bookshelf –
still and silent
wedged between
a porcelain sparrow
with periwinkle wings
and a kaleidoscope;
Made in China. An array
of beautiful colors.” –
or so
the worn sticker
on the bottom says.

Not a word
is spoken between us –
as I dust off sparrows,
kaleidoscopes,
Plath, and Poe.
