Grocery List #17

Winter’s setting in and I found
crumpled
in my old coat pocket
grapes
cheese
table crackers
sparkling cider
dixie cups
chico sticks

in your awful hand,
and I wonder
if you still have things like these,
this detritus from relation-shipwreck’s past
washed upon the shores of your new life,
and why I haven’t yet found the strength
to let these things lie buried
at sea.
