My Dresser Top by Carl D’Agostino

Here lie some coins, after shave,
an old brush for the pet.
A stamp, some paper clips, it’s even my
unpaid bill file cabinet.
A safety pin, unwanted business cards,
Even an old NYC subway token.
Here too, rests an unmailed letter to one
with whom in years I have not spoken.
But when it comes to dusting, this is one
place she knows to stop.
God help the mortal-to-be-ghost, who messes
with my dresser top!
