FORGOT THE EGGS
(8/12/16)

when
a car crash
occurs
between
the grocery store
and home

one wonders

one extra
item

one less
item

one more
walk
down an aisle

a dropped
apple

a few less

a few more
minutes waiting
in the check out
line

and the timing
for the wreck
is altered

the prevailing
circumstances

the other
principals

are either
ahead

or behind
in time

no longer
part
of an accident
scene

but that is
not
the case

instead
the bent

the battered

packages are stored
into the cabinets

the refrigerator

amazingly
not one
yogurt container
transported
in a totaled car
has been broken
