Pack Rat – Leah Mueller

The space between
what you say
and what you don’t
is stuffed with clutter:

cartons of discarded
lies, and new ones you
bought in bulk, but

never used. Perhaps
you should have
a yard sale, and
get rid of some of it:

but you save
the boxes anyway,
in case you
need them later.
