How many dreams lie on Jane’s desk?
Cheque stubs of life’s purchases.
The cards of yesterday’s birthdays
The blank ones for tomorrow
Forgotten past debts…
Debts to others…
A pencil stub,
worn down from writing.
A pen, filled with potential…
The bits and pieces that tell,
Of moments lost in memory.
The faded photographs…
Once important but now nothing…
How many dreams like on Jane’s desk?
