Your novelty item,

“Let me know that yesterday,

You saw me just the same,

Even now when I pretend to be brand new.”

This is new,

This is unopened,

Cling wrapped so tight,

It stills smells like the store,

Every year,

We are these things,

Shiny,

Brand new,

Like the night before,

We were never this person,

So when I say hello,

Respond with a smile,

A gesture of a wave,

Let me know that yesterday,

You saw me just the same,

Even now when I pretend to be brand new.

~M.T.
