Other Summers

Mailman delivered
Some old news today
Souvenirs I’d forgotten
Lost in a cigar box
Of dreams
They lay in the backyard
Of an old memory
Lost to all but my dreams
When I opened the package
They spilled on the floor
And reminded me of my dreams
There was and old watch and some BB’s
A book of matches from Matt’s
A torn ticket to see Willie at the Old Armadillo
I pulled them together
With a tear in my eye
Trying to keep the memories
But memories like pawnshops
Rob you of the things you hold precious
Never forgotten 
Never held again
I left them there such a long time ago
Now they are here, but the memories 
Forgotten, torn like a tissue full of tears
I put them away in a place of other summers
Never to be opened again
