Grocery Lists

November PAD Challenge, Day 13.  Prompt:  Write a "letter" poem.

my dear, you did not
understand, my thin and
pleading words were
all for your good, the
sun rising and
setting a distraction

counting stars my new
occupation, collecting tears
in wide-mouthed jars,
writing out grocery lists,
the buy-one-get-one free
topping the list, storing up
for the future and

hoping these few lines
will find you

I am yours
