My Sixties Suitcase


Weathered, for sure,
it makes an interesting table top now
along with stories about baggage handlers
who paused, then carefully handled her.

And even scarred, battered as it is,
it is not as well-traveled as I dreamed
we both would be.

Go for it now while you're young, pals,
see all this earth you can.

And keep in mind, while you're at it,
that we're doing our best to kill her,
to do your part to stop the trend.
