Thunder

While clearing out old keepsakes
I come across saved matchbooks –
remnants and reminders
of past holidays and pleasures.

I am ready to toss the entire lot
and erase our history 
except for one
which I cannot let go
for no other reason
than its striking power – 

“Thunder”
it reads on a silky 
indigo matchbook cover 
and her seven digit phone number
embossed in gold.
