A Box of Matches

What’s in a box of matches?

A pocket knife about an inch long
A pencil the size of a pin
A piece of red string
Tatters of coloured paper
A pink clip
A lump of wax
The feather of a raven
A lock of fair hair
A hastily scribbled note
The taste of adventure
The smell of summer
My childhood song

I’ve gone
Out on life
Obedient observer
I split my mind
Working out the day
Running away
With my thoughts
As carry-on
To a place
Where I’m not
Missing you
