Poem: Top Right-Hand Drawer

By: JD DeHart


All you need exists
in the top right-hand drawer,
including the bits of tape,
the old pictures of yourself,
the business card,
a reminder about your ego,
the birthday candle you told
yourself you would keep,
the folded napkins from your
dinner dates,
the flowers you meant to lay
at a graveside,
and all the words you meant
to say, gathered and stuffed in.
