How to Make A Box -- Kathleen Flenniken

Find someone with cuts to match
your cuts, lines to meet your lines.
Fold yourself to fit, as required.
Some parts of you may interlock.
Cut out a window and use for a handle.
Carry a secret or make a display.
Hold it together or pull it apart.
You decide what to keep inside.

Seattle Poetry Bus 1999
