Compost

In this drawer lie countless knick-knacks,
a desk-bottom compost of leadless pencils,
to-done lists, tear and scratch pads, and
a running tab of who has borrowed my books,
all hushed away by another day’s duties,
new and sometimes mostly the same.
But today in this drawer lie two

wedding rings.
