Un-Buried Treasure

what survives a move?
something I never thought I cared much about.
years later, while rummaging through boxes,
“so sure I still had that thing”,
instead, there IT was.
that fragile, 7UP bottle,
as distorted as life turned out to be… like me…
survived moves of boxes and crates,
in my mind, in reality,
across cities,
across countries.

gems and sparkling goods that make life more beautiful
maybe even easier…but
… far less charming

digging into the past
may require a heavy shovel.
