Day 28: Lobject’s receipt for gas

Why do I keep receipts to mourn money
loss all at once after months of living?  

Slips of Bible thin paper crinkle and crease  
in the littered wallet, all memories of gas
and fast food lunches since January when
gas was nearer $3.50—a gallon equaling a
Wendy’s cheeseburger combo and days
when bringing lunch was not necessary.
