Title: Photos

Your gaze - so non-commital -
scans my area of love,
and memory.

A flick of dust has settled
on an admirable nose.
A mortar-board askew
upon a happy face.
I smile.

"Do you need so many?" you intone.
"Oh yes" I say.

You do not say 'clutter' -
but in your tidy mind
that is what you see.

My comfort zone -
a gallery of memories.
Dull for you,
but a daily benizon for me.
