Particular things

Each Christmas tree ornament has its own particular story.

Collections
Are not the same
As particular things,
One at a time.
It’s almost Christmas.
The tree goes up
On Christmas Eve
With particular decorations,
Each one
With its own story.
Collections
Are not the same
As particular things.

  1. but, but, but. . . collections usually are made up of particular things. It doesn't diminish a thing's particularity to be included in a collection, but it might give the particular thing a sense of belonging to be part of a collection, perhaps even a sense of grandeur, if things have sensibility.
