Not Yet 8

 

In a haunted jewelry box

an engagement ring 

and wedding band 

once clamped tightly in its box

with a receipt from 1985

Levy Jewelers in the 

Savannah, Georgia mall

one oval quarter carat diamond

two smaller round ones on each side 

cursed in its hope for a future bride 

waiting for a way to shine again 

there is a story 

that cannot yet be told
