Taking Advantage of What Was Left Behind


I ate your pistachios left in the bag on the counter,
Cracked them open  SNAP!  SNAP!  SNAP!
Savored every greenish nut, except for the one
That was rotten and left a bitter taste in my mouth.


Upon reaching the snow covered cabin,
I searched my backpack for the salted, green nuts,
Only to realize that in my forgetfulness
My lover savored them as a gift in my absence.
