Handbags laid away on the shelf
even a few overflowing paper gift bags
each a time capsule, or a landmine.
For today’s foray,
I chose the colorful cat-patterned bag:
Burger King toy
Hike Ohio brochure
a friend’s address (who has since moved again and I still haven’t written)
an almost blank journal:
scribbled cartoons of myself bald
list of tasks, including radiation and infusion dates
I set it back , contents intact, maybe for another 7 years.
