A Small Leather Bag

The girl with the leather bag,
Flames imprinted on the side,
Carries in it
Her soul.
Francesca Lia Block books,
Charles DeLint’s Newford Fairtyales,
Purple yarn
And silver beads.
A picture book of her life.
Wooden knitting needles,
Skirt patterns,
And inky pens.
A cell phone
Her whole life held in its microchips,
A leatherbound date book
Her whole life laid out in scribbled notes
In small white boxes.
And most important of all,
A red plastic heart box,
Her mind,
Her soul,
Her camera.
