Well, this wasn’t supposed to happen.
Where do things go,
the sock missing from the dryer,
the dog’s squeaky toy,
the missing set of keys,
that original copy of a birth certificate
you need to renew your passport?
Is there really a mystery place
where lost things gather?
Is that what purgatory is?
Where is heaven?
Where did love go?
Once it is lost
will we ever see it again?
