Brighton Trunk Case, Unsolved

I’ve been everywhere

Once I was lithe
Strong limbs that leapt and pirouetted
Look at my dancer’s feet

I wanted to go everywhere

Detoured by reckless love
Only got in trouble for my troubles
Look I was beginning to show

I was known everywhere

Above the fold bold headlines
To a footnote in a plywood trunk
Look what’s become of me

Carry me where you go

Only travelled as far as Brighton Station
Unclaimed never named
But look at my feet they danced.
