the sock tray folding…

the sock tray

folding your socks
to insert into a plastic tray
a sock-organizer
I purchased
an item
you will never use

it is partly compulsion
a distaste for disorder
the same urge that leads me
to alphabetize
your fiction

it is partly a pledge
a hope
a desire

that I will be here
folding your socks

when you return
from Zurich
and after
