I pick it up off a shelf
And turn it over in my hand
And looked at the tag

6 trash bags full of ill fitting clothes
45 hours of therapy
2 dozen tissues under the bed
28 years of simmering under the surface
12 books on bedside tables
10 years of post-high school disassociation
50 pounds of weight gain
3 dustpans full of dust and fur

The tag went on
And on
And on.
