the locket

i can see it.

a flash of silver,

a flash of ruby,

and there it is.

bared for the entire world to see.

your heart.

id like to argue

the absolutely absurdity of

carrying it around on

a chain.

filled with the pictures of your life.

a simple snap from tumbling

onto the floor,

stepped on and forgotten

until you need it,

until you want to give it away.
