Words can create magic and I want to get lost in them for some part of each day.

Balancing Books.

She measures well
all that is measurable
puts labels and amounts
on that which is not                                                                      
Counting in neat stacks 
Ticking off items 
Weighing all the stuff
Taking in before any Giving
Ounce for an ounce
Making the right Deductions
It is Excellent Management
All that toting -
And Balancing of Books.
The Neat Ledgers of Squared Deals.
But in her Accounts
All that is left on Credit
are Gripes and Regrets
Each debited neatly against
A small piece of her Peace Of Mind.
