Tell her.
Need beer.
Need toilet paper & garbage bags [30 gal.]
Why did I say. . .Jesus Mary and. . .why?
Buy those awful cookies she scarfs.
Leave message.
Whatchacalls got shreds of coconut on top.
Tell her.
How much time does a person need?
Buy more legal pads.   
Staples better have yellow.  Hate this pink crap.
Conference call, 11 a.m. Tues.  Don't take No.
Call Sprint.  
Can't go on this way.
Sunlight hit the stoop as she was directing the moving
      men.  Hair red as a never-used penny
Like seeing her roots.  Freckles.  Chocolate kiss eyes
Take sheets to laundromat. . .or buy?
Cookies on aisle 7.   8-?
Tell her.
Stupid pencil.  Barely write.
Sorry pen.  Loves the Parker for her birthday. . .late
Chips, frozen tacos, salsa, sour cream, cheese,  see if
     Food Lion  has pencils.  Candles for when she comes back?
Tall red tapers and a bouquet.  Irises, if they have them.

Enjoyed tremendously this absorbing swirl of consciousness making its way through mundane practicalities and emotional tension. As with much of the best your work--to me--it illustrates the tight rope of anxiety (or is it sensitivity?) stretched between the nonchalance and quiet desperation that composes so many of our lives. And that somehow ends up tossed out of our souls CRUMPLED BY DUMPSTER.

Hi Pea:

A very intriguing write, and very thought-provoking! Something like a slice of life and is honest and real. Good to read something like this.

Love this, Pea! One could live this simple list for life...or at least I could...what more do you need...maybe a few rhinestones and Rit! I printed this out and magneted it to my fridge with a ceramic pea in the pod I have!--->it's a keeper.

It is amazing the messages and stories of our day to day lifes that are captured in our many varied list and routines as this poem so brightly shows captured.

Complex. Unique. Brilliant slices of life, the moment here, then gone, thrown away like so much trash...well done, my beloved Pea!

What a bundle of emotions all wrapped up in a grocery bag full of life and love's complexities. Just incredibly flashing and imaginative and real my friend.
Reviewed by Peter Paton 7/15/2006

Only you, brilliant you, could have written this wonderfully original and imaginative piece..

And do I detect Pea... that you have been afflicted with that deadly cookie craving, instigated by Ogre Ed and Lady A Pax...:)

Loved it
