Some Things Cannot Be Contained
I watched you from a distance,
as you pulled a wooded box
from the earth.
You pried it open,
turned it upside down,
and its contents fell at your feet.
Two little people made of rags,
a twin of you and a twin of me.
You wept over the figures,
tears dripping from your fingertips,
and you screamed aloud
“I shouldn’t have to be alone!”
But we were always alone.
You placed your twin inside the box
and returned him to the earth.
Then you walked away with mine
and took me home.
