antique aunt

i remember
one day my aunt
allowed me to clear
up her attic
i could not believe
what i found — all
of these antique
soda bottle caps
in mason jars
collecting
dust

it\’s quite
remarkable
the things 
we collect
over time
that tend
to take
a depth
of their own
in our memories
— precious
reminders
of the life
we\’ve lived

even as simple
as something
like a bottle
cap could
probably
distill
the most
complicated
