Packing List

by on February 22, 2023 :: 1 comment

The blue dress that has pockets for pebbles and shows off my legs.
The sandals with the Velcro straps for the beach.
The linen jacket for chilly evenings.
A pair of scissors to trim lose ends.
A map to know where the boundaries are.
A mask to hide my true feelings.

An adapter to understand your language.
An icon of the patron saint of disagreements.
A gift to appease the needy gods you worship.

A calculator to determine how many apologies to exchange for my faults.
A purse full of coins to purchase absolution.
A spare heart in case mine gets broken.
How to make it all fit.

And the question; can you check it or carry it on? – mh clay

    Enjoyed the journey you take me on. Starts with a universal experience and ends with universal and yet deeply personal feelings. I particularly appreciate “A calculator to determine how many apologies to exchange for my faults.”
