8 boxes and a trunk load.
That defines my life
or at least my possessions.
If materials are what life affords you,
maybe they are a good measure.
I see it hasn't afforded me much,
although the shipping costs sure did.
What about the things outside of books,
and office supplies?
I have had countless memories,
and laughter as thin,
yet as full, as air.
I should be
glad that life has thus afforded me little,
for the indefinables have been infinite.
