the thief

Echoes from Emptiness: Miriam Louisa Simons, Ryokan's Moon, mixed media

 

I was lying there
minding my own business,
(right leg in plaster to the hip)
when
uninvited, You came into my room
heavily disguised as a thief
and in one gracious sweep of stealth
You grabbed all evidence of my personal identity
and melted into the night –
passport, driver’s licenses, documents,
credit cards, Filofax, address book, wallet,
money, foreign papers and currency
gone

You left me as a paperless refugee
You left me enraged, frustrated, incredulous
but You never frightened me for one moment

and oh, look –

You forgot the moon, again.
