Day 115 – rapt

Day 115
6:12 pm – 6:32 pm

rapt

the tissue paper
wants some respect

crumpled, saved,
hidden, repurposed,
and for what?

perhaps,
for the same return,
all over again?

never praised
for her lofty ethereal
song

nor considered
for her exceptionally modern
sway

at the whim of her carrier
never pondered quite
like the hearty gift wrap

but she is the cotton,
the coat liner, the
noble caress!

so much
for her affair
with the bubble wrap

short-lived as it was
they were the only ones who
ever got each other
