Maintaining The Illusion

Out of the corner of my eye
It looks like a bracelet
With sterling silver flowers and wiggles and
A sterling silver border
A cool and funky piece of jewelry
Shoved in my little odds and ends container
Along with random recipes
Empty index cards
The “solutions disk” for our new camera
A ruler
 And a book about the presidents written for children
Everytime I see it I wonder why it’s there and
Try to remember
What it really looks like
Until I do
Today it took about ten seconds and
I didn’t bother picking it up
Since I had nothing to cut and
I kind of want to preserve the illusion for next time
