Frail hinges pivot 
On a case's door 
Souvenirs from places 

Containers change with occasion 
Cellophane encased 
Displaying paper 

Credit years of service 
A tool of central enterprises 
The early hope 
For permanence 

The words the rings 
Social security 

The miracles high tragedy 
A thought mistaken for a memory 
Dress lengths assassinations 
Fractured family ties and christenings 

Local posts will list your friends 
In order of disappearance 
Lawn scattered tins feed birds 
The portion baked 

For absent guests 
The mass edition icon 
God sent comfort 
Your salvation 

But who grants absolution 
For sins that never were committed 
Tension makes a tangle 
Of each thought becomes 

Sound never penetrates 
The servile edges break and faint 
A thought mistaken for a memory 

Clear the dust 
From smiles in boxes 
Pass the patterned wall 
Recall their voices
