Each one

I spent what felt like four weeks
taking the socks off the clothes airer.
Each one a cartoon cloud.
Each one a microwave
for the world’s smallest buffet food.
Each one a tiny judge’s wig.
Each one decorated
with the head of a fox
or a chicken or a duck or a dog.
Each one a safe made from candy floss.
Each one with no idea
what they’re in charge of.
Each one with no concept of the value of gold.
