Found mini lotions and shampoos from places traveled to, lived in, passed through.
Found shaving cream cans of an ex’s, found makeup from time out West, when I tried to be glamorous, found medication bottles from periods of bad health and pain, in between there and here.
Mini toiletries given as gifts from friends no longer trusted.
So much in a cabinet.
Stories of gain, performance, loss, past selves, survival. Perfumed smells of time now gone. Colored tubes of different women I once was or once tried to be.
