Life's Picture Frame By: Ellen Lucas

She has a eye for the strange;

says the miscellaneous objects scattered

across the closets tattered shelves.

A miniature Effie tower laid beside her

bedroom window beams of light shining

upon; tells the girl has a dream,

a dream to explore and seek out the world.

A small game of Travel Tangoes leaned on

the windows glass, missing many pieces;

it repeats the girl has traveled,

but has done so many times.

A dust ridden hamster cage neatly stacked

far from reach at the top of the closet

untouched yet scratched up all over;

Echoed that she is no stranger to death.

Photos scattered all over her closet doors,

and swung high from side to side on a

green string holding pictures of her over time;

told that she was very family-oriented.

She was tidy ; says the open dark desk

holding her many objects of decorations,

and electronics. No she wasn't; contradicted

the messy bundle of objects hidden with the

small sliding doors below a reflective glass.

And beside the over flowing trash can.
