The Shopping List

The shopping list is scribbled, crossed out,
check marked, captioned, parenthesized, on
yellow note paper, with blue lines. Milk … check.
toilet paper … check. Kleenex … check. “Honey,
can you grab some coffee while I look for the peanut butter.”

“Of course, dear.”

Flour … check. Biscuits … check. Coffee … check.
“Thank you, babe. Oh, we need some bread. Could you be a dear?”

“Sure thing, honey.”

Sugar … check. Pie crust … check. Bread … check.
Love …  Check.
