What will you do with all those artistic photograph albums?

13. prompt: A question which is answered
in the poem

They ask her as if the end
justifies a particular means.
She is creating the story
of her life for others?

No, her life started and will end
as hers; the community which
owns the memories of her
will create their own. Stories.

She has threatened to send
all seventy-eight (and that's
today's count) to a national
repository, as if she is famous!

To the most recent enquirer
she responded: they shall
bury my beautiful journals
in my grave; I will sleep better.
