Pack Out Haiku

Bed Bath and Beyond
Costco, Sports Authority
Target, IKEA


cart full to the brim
organic peanut butter
cashiers give strange looks


we can’t fit any
more Honey Nut Cheerios
I think we’ll be fine


check lists and check outs
boxes and bins overflow
goodbyes still undone


A few disclaimers:
1. I’m sure there are all sorts of little copyright and trademark symbols I should add. Let’s call it an artistic license.

2. Excuse the cheesiness. I’m definitely not a poet, and all this shopping is making me punchy.

      I needed a 5th one to round it out. This is beautiful and exactly how I feel! Makes sense since you have done your share of international moves.
