Moving House

paper wrapped in paper
what is the purpose?


Mummified objects
are laid low
placed in oblong boxes
embellished with
banana company logos
and the smuckers insignia

Placing and replacing
in a mechanical pattern
thoughtless yet purposeful

Where does that belong?
To whom? To what?

Does each thing require a certain spot?

Pack it
it will find its place
it always does
the old amongst the new
homogenizing the unknown
and the familiar
