When my parents moved

they put all my books in

big brown box.


the scribbled over surface

of the box revealed that

it once contained :


photos from the girl’s room

of a family that had moved

from Australia to India, and


before that: Garrett’s shoes


The box has lived through so many


Yet, when I ask-

“Who are You?”


It says:

“I am just a box.”
