Poem 14/30 Trunk in the Middle of the Room

TRUNK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM

Brown steamer trunk
sits in the middle
of the room

Don’t open it
Just because it’s there

says the voice

I open it just
because it’s there

Newspaper
Old shoes

Beneath the lining,
black/silver striped
shirts, all the same,
size Small

A note pinned
to fabric:

This is our code word
When I call you:

20/20


The trunk remains
wedged into the middle
of the room
