when i moved from one house to another

there were many things i had no room

for. what does one do? i rented a storage

space. and filled it. years passed.

occasionally i went there and looked in,

but nothing happened, not a single

twinge of the heart.

as i grew older the things i cared

about grew fewer, but were more

important. so one day i undid the lock

and called the trash man. he took


i felt like the little donkey when

his burden is finally lifted. things!

burn them, burn them! make a beautiful

fire! more room in your heart for love,

for the trees! for the birds who own

nothing -- the reason they can fly.
