April 2019 Napowrimo-Day 12

Write a poem about a dull thing that you own, and why (and how) you love it. Alternatively, what would it mean to you to give away or destroy a significant object?

polished the brass hairpin
the one I used when we last
said goodbye
I hoped it would shine again
but the rust sealed it shut
no amount of effort
brings the dead
back to life
but still I keep it
on my nightstand
