🌿 Pockets

Carry many things.

Some useful —

wallet, phone,

grocery cart loonie,

a comb.

Some special —

copper penny,

feather, pebble,

a memory

so tender — but tangled

with a grief too heavy

for a pocket to hold

without a

bulging, tearing

falling out or apart

so the

pocket is stitched,

patched, reinforced.

A memory pocket full

(with grief)

is still better than

one that is

empty.
