I could show you photos of places
I’ve visited, like exotic spaces
On Travel-TV. But truth to tell
I haven’t been anywhere. I‘m not well
Enough for a trip. Further, I have
No ticket stubs from shows that gave
Us pleasure. My collections don’t include
Teaspoons, stamps, butterflies, or food
Notes cribbed from cookbooks or menus.
My collections are seen in other venues,
Like books I’ve bought from amazon bargains
And all the notes I’ve written in the margins.
