Freeverse 221


the closed storage unit holds
not really secret secrets
behind a quiet door
with no peephole
or knocker
or doorbell
just a lock with rust
it was opened once long ago
filled with not really treasure treasures
and strata of dust
forgotten by all but somehow remembered
today I open it and learn about my family
