i keep so many small things
hidden in my pocket
little memories, receipts, judgement calls
spare change i pull out when i'm poor.

i have a knife there too
though it is often used
on the inside
not on the out

and i cannot find my favorite pieces because i've scattered them about

i keep receipies of my favorite flavors
and try to taste them over again
but don’t you see, they only rot
staying in my pocket

and i keep a key to the world, so that i can lock it

and no one will find my favorite things because i've scattered them about.
