Tale of a Treasure

Ella, Sri Lanka, 2015.

Ella, Sri Lanka, 2015.

 

Once,
there existed
a wardrobe
whose exterior
mirrored that
of a chest.

Man sought
long and hard,
far and wide,
for this chest
of which myth
had told.

One day,
he found it
fortuitously,
after years of
pursuit 
following
ancient maps.

Within it,
he uncovered
his treasure
– the soul
of another
– his forever.

– Agnes Chew
