I know you’re spying over me.
A little here; a little there, like a fly
that keeps showing up
in the car three hours away,
at mass while little bells ring,
and at poolside while typing.
I see your wings in each pass.
So I thought nothing of how I lost
two hundred plus paper cutlets
after pulling out one thin slice
to place in the fishing basket.
I just figured you knew better than I
about distributing to those here in need
