  • four rings
    six earrings that don't match
    one pair that do
    a glass marble
    a tail feather from Cha-Chi the Cockatiel.

    three necklaces
    a necklace with a missing diamond
    a necklace with a black pearl
    a necklace with a paua shell cross
    and a cross without a necklace I found at the curb
    with Jesus still on it.

    three bracelets
    one silver
    one gold
    one with a black stone.
    Kieran said that was him.

    flower petals, now dried
    a love note left for me on the kitchen counter
    eight years ago
    hidden in the seams.
