dirty laundry

they are
of no consequence,
the little secrets
i hoard cupped
in jealous hands
when given the opportunity
to use those self-
same hands to bring you close, i
absently tuck them away
like old receipts
inside the tight back
pocket of my careworn jeans,
finding them only
weeks later, crumpled
and incomprehensible
in the wash.
