Once

In the collectables
there is often a holdover trace
of special occasions
and marked days.
Some were once coveted,
prized accumulations
of judged worth.
Now they linger and collect dust.
One day soon
they will be reassessed
in the manner
of antiseptic grief
and most,
save a solitary vase,
will be returned to dust,
inconsequential to modern times,
though once they held promise.
