Boxes

Packing up
isn’t the hard part.
Leaving is easy.
Just put it all
in these temporary
transitional containers
these deceptively strong
boxes
and run
out the door
hurry, or
you’ll be trapped
forever buried
but no, you’ve made it
to a new home
a new place and
now it’s time
for the much harder
decisions of
shedding the safety of boxes.
Each minute a new choice.
Where will it all go, and
who will you be
when all your detritus
is unpacked?
