Unapologetically Taken

I don't know when it happened;
I had twenty dollars
at the Christmas tree farm
and then I didn't.

My gloves and scarves
would steal away.
My hats dove down
to sales floors,
camoflouged,
without consent.

At the post office, for example.
With my bills and change
safely tucked away.
The reason I was there
equally unretrievable.

And that's how it is.
Every day.
A fight to find
the cleaning supplies or
get out of my own way.

To strain
to follow the speed of
conversations.
To dismiss the thoughtlessness
of condescension.

Don't tell me you understand
because you don't.
To lose
what you once knew
each day.
To have it so aggresively,
unapologetically
taken away.
