changing habitats


one mundane item at a time
they nestle in like puzzle pieces
one wrapped, another bare
all of differing values
utility, monetary, nostalgic
each goes into their box or bag
ready to explore new surroundings
pictures and mirrors hung on fresh walls
a wardrobe fitting in with new neighbors
mingling suites with dresses they’d met before
potted plants finding new sunny sills to adorn
her bed, my mattress now becomes ours
the pillows make small talk
macerating tokens from different lives
taking on new flavors from this strange location
leaving the new settlers to  barrel forward
with the intriguing nuances of cohabitation
