I Lost My Car

again today.

I’d gone to the grocery

with my usual list

so as not to get home and discover

that I’d forgotten onions or bread.

I thought I’d parked in my spot

opposite the stop sign . . .

–Excerpt from “I Lost My Car” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013). First published in Flint Hills Review.
