Entropy (Box After Box)

the problem basically
is that
i don't want to do this

the dank basement is full of
box after box
of deteriorating memories

i haven't the heart for execution
to dispose of someone
else's treasures

likely in there
i am
somewhere in those boxes

so in a way
i am
erasing a bit of myself

~ ~ ~

in the darkest corner
of the basement
is a small separate room

and in that room
through a dilapidated door
is a closet

and in that disconnected closet
a hidden door
lies

without a thought
i am again
opening that surreptitious door

~ ~ ~

the passage is always difficult
deeper
it leads down

crisp echoes my shuffling
groping towards
a distant glow

eventually
i
emerge

in the verdant glen
there is the sound
of gently murmuring water

sun softly dappling the moss
silken light
pervading this wordless room

now i can hear
a young couple
giggling

~ ~ ~

nothing is written
on the back

no date
no place
no name

another unknown photograph
another unrecalled memory
another ungrasped moment

i feel
unauthorized
to contemplate these things

box after box

yet in a way
i am
forgetting a bit of myself
