sometimes I wonder

is there a bank
maybe in St. Louis
where all these moments
being placed on deposit
will add up to something

maybe they taste like vanilla
swell and ache in the rain
distend when the stock market is up
dress nicely on Tuesdays, thinking you might come by
buy things they have no space for
buy things that clash with their decor
appreciate a nice wind from the North
have plans, too

what will happen when they mature
will they go on vacation and not return
or are they drawn back to their original
owner, dragging wounded hindparts
across thousands of miles for a pat
on the head?
