“Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”
mementos all around, unremarkable
remembrances of a life, long spent
dog-eared pictures, news articles
odd souvenirs from places she went!
they clutter her room!
remnants of a life, all that remains
only memories, at the end of days
a past undistinguished; like chains
that bind her to a twilight haze...
and clutter her mind!
