What’s in the Bag?
What’s in the bag beside my chair?
I’ll tell you what I keep in there —
Two mechanical pencils
Four loose pens — two black, two blue
A set of six black graphic liner pens
Another set of three in sepia tone
A set of eight Pilot G2 gel pens in varying colors
A recipe for shortbread,
Morning prayers from Laity Lodge,
My portable hard drive
A portable charger,
An I-love-you note
A thank you note
Zinc cold remedy
A travel lock
Loose change totalling 86¢
Old shopping lists
Old grocery store receipts
Clearly I keep too much stuff
So I said, “Enough is enough!”
The last three items on my list
Without much fanfare were dismissed.
