Everyone had to go

The rummage sale over
everyone found something new

the leftovers were gathered, boxed,
prepared to be sent away

unwanted and unwanted and unwanted

wanted until the moment
before the novelty
wore into boredom

but certainly
someone will find
the used
and see useful,

find the old
and see beautiful
surely

Newness grows old
in the face of old comfort.
