Thank You for Things We’re Allowed to Take Without Asking

(and not be stealing)

a breath


a hint

a shower

a minute

a break

a memo

a photo of a landscape

a vow


a compliment

a powder

a stand or action against injustices

the cake

pity on the soul of…

it easy

another little piece of my heart, now baby


a bite (if it’s your plate)

a look around

command of a situation

our time

a risk

a walk

it or leave it

the hand of a loved one

the trash out

a nap

a closer look at ourselves


a bow

pride in an accomplishment

home a doggy bag

charge of our own lives

There now, take that!
