Security Lines

what if I can’t travel with
because of
oh you know  it shows up on the monitor

that static image x-ray of a measly meager life?
the picture show
a Rorschach test–these innards of baggage

familiar hairbrush  preening
clothing  invisible
what does it mean?

do my belongings lack?

do they see a heart when I walk through
the ancient sword I swallowed?

the yellow pen lies quietly
hot clip of india ink
nib bayonet in gold
