That sacred Closet when you sweep

That sacred Closet when you sweep

That sacred Closet when you sweep
Entitled “Memory”
Select a reverential Broom
And do it silently.

‘Twill be a Labor of surprise
Besides Identity
Of other Interlocutors
A probability

August the Dust of that Domain
Unchallenged let it lie
You cannot supersede itself
But it can silence you



Poem That sacred Closet when you sweep - Emily Dickinson
