Stashed Away With Your Prized Accoutrements

Consider
the secret stories
you carry with you

how much do they weigh
what kind of pencils
are required

to keep them colored in
are they hazy or precise
do they comfort

or slice
unapologetically
& emphatically yours

to have & to hold
forever in your belly
unless you write them out
