I remember unpacking reasons
from the suitcase of my mind;
unfolding, examining, turning over each and every one
until I found the reason for my chosen pathway.
That reason is merely another box
filled with more forgotten tokens and trinkets
for me to lay side by side, end to end
and examine, unfold, turn over;
a seemingly endless spectrum of
possibilities, memories, eulogies,
epiphanies, allegories, remedies ,
mythologies, magic trees, heart disease…
and from this you ask me to select 450 words.
