11 May

have these been your rations,
parceled out
and stored in the pockets
of your favorite pants
full of memories
of everyone else too?
pulling me out
in pinches of lint
to dress your back
in collections of me
like a sweater,
like a fad.
i will stay for your season
and warm you through your winter
but measure me carefully
every portion
makes me smaller,
or less here.

i would like to last.
