you have stolen too many things from me


at first it was little things


pennies from my bedside table


the sausage i was saving for breakfast


my gnarled and stubby pencils


things anyone could forgive


i'm no fanatic


i understand


some things are habitual


even necessary


I didn't worry


until later


Things of consequence


began to disappear


my toothbrush


the last four sheets of my writing paper


the key to the house




it broke my stride


i found my days


fallen to pieces with these omissions


either I was too passive


or too polite


now it is too late


you have taken my couch


my curling iron


my favorite cat


and this morning I woke


with both breasts


gone

I remember enjoying this one before, Judy.

Thanks, Mar & Mignon.  Mignon- guess you didn't scroll down far enough!  I haven't put anything new here for awhile and I should!
