Singer sewing machines

Five hundred singer sewing machines
were found in grandfather’s shed;
all neatly stacked and catalogued.

Each one repaired and oiled
by grandfather’s calloused fingers,
gathering dust now in a dark corner.

Over several months we sold the machines
until the old shed was eventually empty,
just like grandfather’s memories.
