' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Jack In A Box

So, this
is it?

Life's little artifacts

his life scattered
the contents of this

cardboard box

a broken
wrist watch

hands missing

a faded ribboned
...medal

an incomplete
love letter

pages 2 & 7
missing

photos
torn

tattered with time
when the world

was a sepia hue

even the box
they are in is

battered

nothing of any
great value.

So lively
all go

despite age trying
to hold him back

a regular
Jack in the Box

....buried
yesterday

no tears
no nothing

nothing remaing
of his time

except this
bric a brac

knocking about
in an old shoe box

about to be
...binned.
