You can tell a lot from someone's possessions.

Who they are. Aspire to be.

Where they're from. Been. Wish to go.

Postcards from Finland and a good friend. Harvard. London.

MetroCard. Handmade stamp (East Village).

Baby owl (Brunswick St). Baby's breath.

Gifts from cousins. Duty-free perfume (oh-so grown-up).

Books. Some still unread. (One day, I tell myself.)

Fleur-de-lis. 21st birthday present. Grandma's (and mine).

More baby's breath. Owls (Canberra, Hiroshima).

Postcards (Sydney, Washington DC).

Things. (Memories.)
