order does not come naturally to me
i have to make myself organize
force myself to pick up and put away
piles are easier than order
yet eventually cause stress
as things are lost or forgotten
lies are easier than truth
though piles of lies eventually cause stress
“where’s the truth in all this mess,
where’d i put that memory,
did it actually happen?
i might have dreamt it.
handmedown piles of lies are harder to organize
seem impossible to sort out
make sense of
but just like the piles of stuff
the layers can be peeled back
toss the junk
eventually the truth will turn up.
