My pockets

My pockets might hold

Ink stains,

Food remains,

Dust balls,

Odd balls,

Random coins,

Knee joints,

House keys,

Dead bees,

Pocket knives,

Half-chewed chives,

One handkerchief,

Oft lost to the hanky thief,

Two bills,

Three rupees,

Four spiders

Five types of cheese

Six unmatched cards,

Seven leaves

Eight crumbs of dinner

Nine peas

And ten ways to hell.

But usually

It just holds

My heart.
