it isn't just a hinge you know
first you must assemble
specific elements

the spinster's cedar for the hope that gives it mass
baby's first tooth for inlay of hunger

the alcoholic's elbow for the habit of returning
to spite a chaotic universe

the suicide's emptiness
in which the pleasures of others may be harbored

yet it is not done

a box is noteworthy only
to otherwise flat surfaces or full pockets or eyes
bigger than our stomachs which long
for more room
or more loot

there can only be one answer
though there might be more
than one question
