Poem #139

I have a new relationship
Not with a man
Or a cat
But with my stuff
Like many of my old relationships
It was excessive
Out of control
And yes, I'll say it
Addictive
More books than I could read
More clothes than I could wear
My past of sad memories
A weight in the basement

I've never been a hoarder, mind you
I've pitched and purged with glee
But then bought more
I never took the time
To home what I had
To find that place for everything
And now I have

I have a new relationship
with my stuff
Not just tidy
But peaceful
Soothing
Zen
