Self storage made into a poem

Many people continue to use self storage units as a means to keep their trinkets and valuables safe. The spaces also take on new metaphoric meaning for one poet, who recently published her latest poem, Self-Storage, in The Monarch Review, KUOW.ORG reports.

In the poem, artist Rebecca Hoggs describes a loss of love and uses self storage as a metaphor for the places she stores her memories and thoughts of her lost love.

"It’s all too real how I keep myself to myself. I have rented a self-storage unit on the edge of a natural depression," Hoggs writes in her poem in The Monarch Review. "I am the stuff I store. So sky, keep your bolts to yourself. If you don’t have sunshine to say, say nothing at all."

In a way, self-storage can be similar to emotional baggage that people collect during their lives, but others simply use the space as an area to store their valuables or excess possessions.

Many rent the spaces based on specific requirements, such as units with climate control or without windows to avoid heat or condensation from ruining their items.
