A draw of odds and ends


11th April 2021

so easy to access,

and then so hard to close

recepticle for things you say you need

the things you say you’ll use one day

and things you can’t throw away

Notepad’s and pencils that have been well chewed

share space with computer drives that’s been acrued

manuals for tech that lives round the house

together with cameras (and occasional mouse)

A couple of shavers long seen light of day

A Tape recorder longing to hear summat play

while resting on papers also kept there in

Documents for stuff – you’ve long shown the bin

but under the manuals – memories galore

those nik-naks you’ve kept from weddings and more

kept under the papers you can’t throw away

pictures and postcards of a happier day
