8 Boxes

August 10th, 2009

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,

spaceless surprises,

and laughter as thin,

yet as full, as air.

I should be

and am

glad that life has thus afforded me little,

for the indefinables have been infinite.
