Whatever You Do, Don’t Look Inside

Whatever You Do, Don’t Look Inside

Someone left this box
on my threshold
the other day.
It’s wrapped in plain brown paper,
but there’s a fancy red bow on top of it.
I took it inside
and it is now sitting
on my coffee table.
When I put my ear
next to it,
I almost believe I can hear something.
I could go on pretending
it is not there,
but people have started
asking questions.
I suppose I should take it
to the cellar
or even
bury it in the garden.
Then I should just
forget about it.
