Magazines in Every Corner

Written by: Madalin Bickel

Magazines in every corner
Rubber bands on lids of jars
Silk ribbons and dried flowers
Glossy brochures from afar.

Mantle, desk, and table
Piled high with worn out books.
Long forgotten potpourri
ticked away in tiny nooks.

Faded quilts across the bed,
Davenport, and tattered chair
Decorated by a lazy cat
Gently grooming her gray hair.

Dusty must moldy air
Timelessly suspended
Ages past, lives once lived
Forgotten and now ended.
