All the Days Behind This One

Every labyrinth hides
in the ordinary. 

A letter in faded script on brown 
paper, folded three times, precisely.

The kitchen drawer that leads
to a case of unused cutlery.

A birdcage with rusted perches
that held pairs of blue-feathered birds.

A tiny keepsake box 
of wedding tokens, with the label 

"And we lived happily ever after."
