Keeping Memories in Cardboard Boxes

i keep everything anyone’s ever given me,
she said. it’s sentimental.
my first girlfriend told me the same thing.
i have a small cardboard
box with a few things from my most recent
past relationship
but nothing from the ones before that and
soon enough i’m sure
that this one will end up disappearing, too
into some trash can like
the musty piece of long-gone yesterdays that
it is.
