Pain Au Chocolat 1; Me zero

karma apparently
has deemed
that I am to learn
small
frequent
lessons in humility
outdone this morning
by Pain Au Chocolat
a set of tongs
and a slanted tray
had it been for me
I would have
walked away
but it was for my kid
whose life pretty much sucks
mom guilt courses through my veins
the 18 year old
behind the counter
was really nice
about it
she had no idea
what it cost me
to ask for help
