The Secret of Dungeons

It’s okay to open the door

__to the basement 

__and examine the unwanted storage 

__gathering dirt, dust, and spiderwebs 

_
The scariest item down there

__is you

_
Breathe through the protective mask

__so you don’t become the dust 

_
Root through the decomposing papers

__and mementos

__ taking root through cement floor

_
Select 

Yank

Toss

Wash

_
Can you breathe easier yet?
