A Few Other Things

by J. K. Durick 

The list we prepared and
Followed religiously through
The aisles, ticking off each
Item as if it were a mission
Accomplished didn’t work,
So this is the backup plan
The one we build into most
Things we do, a do-over
A slight correction that we
Build into the day, this other
Me returning to fix things up
The better me who knows
Now what’s missing from
That first go-round, the better
Shopper with his new list
The list of the missed items
To be ticked off, a check
Next to these other things
We needed badly enough
That I return, the ghost of
Visits past, the corrective
Angel finishing things up.
