to the brim

tennis shoes and tentpoles
discovered in deep closets,
unopened tins of sardines
jammed in blank boxes –
some things seen,
with fond rediscovery
packed away,
and others tossed –
what use for a scuba tank
in the Great Plains,
or a Sun-replacement lamp
in Florida?
What use for an old life
when it crowds out the new?
