One last discovery before turning out the lights (a poem)

Found another box to look through…

It’s hard to believe
I was ever a size 1
in anything

It’s hard to believe
these things I’m seeing
that I’ve never seen before—

neither tucked away
in catacombs
impossible to find

nor concealed
in sights familiar
and everyday

and somehow
never talked about
though not exactly hidden

These are things
I might have asked about
had I been shown

Some things
will remain unknown
