“Treasure?” is the featured poem for July 2015 via David Evans, Feature Editor
by Patricia Carragon
What can be said of something
Buried in this nameless alley,
When it was once treasured,
Given out of love?
Or can love be measured,
When the past is rejected –
Sleeps in filth, alone and neglected?
What can be said of a memory
When it was there to serve its owner?
Was it witness to sadness or happiness?
Was it cherished for its unique design
Or did it lose its value under duress,
When time grew tired of its use
And dumped it out of casual abuse?
What can be said of myself
Seen within this ragged treasure?
Am I a common thread, forgotten,
Inside seams and buttonholes,
With memories stale and rotten -
Or a recycled life waiting to begin
Within washed and mended skin?
