Old Thoughts of You

Old Thoughts of You

by Melissa Morris


I’ll pack up my old thoughts of you

and store them

in the bags I keep under my eyes,

so that when I look out my window

at the blankets

of golden brown leaves,

I will imagine

that they were once angels’ wings

and that they could be again.
