From a Charm Bracelet

Now no one will be able to say
I’ll be the thimble.

Wish I could have been
the rocking horse or the lantern.

Who really wants to be an old shoe?
Everyone loves the Scottie dog.

And the race car
and the top hat.

For me so much depends upon
that silver wheelbarrow.

A nouveau sack of money? Some tokens need to be retired before they pass Go.

It took long enough
to add the cat.

Rejecting the diamond ring, robot,
and helicopter makes sense.

But the guitar—
why the hell not?
