“Don’t mess with the boxes just yet ….” from Murval

But There It Was

In my mind it was in the medium sized box,
but on further investigation it wasn't there,
so I tried the big box, the other big box, 
the little box, and nothing, retracing my 
steps, memories flooding back, different 
space same experience, always the hunting,
almost certain, confused, tired, hopeful,
almost giving up, but there it was, right at
the bottom of that first box.
