three dots …

What do I have in my pockets?

A beeswax taper—
A wrapper from a Hershey kiss—
A phone—
A pen—
A tissue—
A recording device (borrowed from a friend)—
A notebook—
A university ID card—
A debit card—
A house key—
Two dollars eighty-five cents—
One of those cards you can peel off of a McDonald’s coffee cup where once you have seven stickers you get a free drink—
A cork—
A grocery receipt—
An ATM receipt—
Another pen—
An almond—
A pamphlet from a recent Winter Retreat—
A scrap of paper with a poem written on it (”Great Things Have Happened” by Alden Nolan), and—thank heavens!—
A tissue.
