The Grocery List

Grocery List:
Butter
Eggs
Milk
Pasta

Sitting, looking at this list
things I need
but can do without

One more thing needs to be added
thing I need
but can’t do without

Are they really selfless
these mothers that never were?

I have another new dog
passed around too many times
in her young life

Jumps at every sound
wary but wanting
the love I can give

Meanwhile,
Loki snuggles on my lap
has he forgotten his former life?

I want to be him
I want to forget

A show was on tonight
a fictional, happy-ever-after plot
adopted daughter finds father and grandmother

A momentary lapse into fantasy
but then reality sets in
of something I need, but will never find

Grocery List:
Butter
Eggs
Milk
Pasta


Mother

Something I can’t live without
