a red crocodile duffel bag
from bath and body works
I used for my first church retreat.
inside it smells like
Lucky Charms and lemon toilet spray

“Kids’ Adventure Bible”

size medium shirts dad bought for me in case
I come down from 
an xl

I can’t let go of my first webkinz
but I’ll let go of the second


an empty plastic crate and some limp file folders because last night I recycled almost all the school work I’ve hoarded since kindergarten and I know I know I just know

am I shriveling?
