Unlikely tag teams

Socks and Work Stuff
Coat Hangers and Pyjamas
Umbrellas and Fairy Lights
Today we are boxes,
a pair of lost kids
lined up in a register
of temporary nicknames.
Ornaments and Plasticine Heads
Photo Frames and Harry
Llama Blanket and Miscellaneous
On Sunday
these unlikely tag teams
will split up throughout a new home,
smiling across the room.
