I have to narrow my life down to ten boxes.

It's surprising how attached you get
to something as simple as a mug you stole from Dennys
or the fork from a college you would've gone to,
had you the money or the grades.

It's like a self portrait out of tupperware,
finding your face in a pile of blankets
or a book you could've loved,
had you the time to read.
Maybe I submitted this before and took it down.

I found this poem when I got all my stuff back from my dead laptop. And I fell in love with this poem. Did I ever feel that way before? I don't think so.

I like the idea of an actual self-portrait in Tupperware.

Ode to various Batmans. Plush superheroes. Painted dragons. I'm actually really feeling these as titles.
