Unpaid Invoice

My belief is “I still owe you”
for all those sunny days or
months of caring warmth

Despite feasting at our table
brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert
the old unresolved bill is there

I walked away; leaving the
tab on the plywood counter
without reaching for my wallet

These hands and lips are clean,
plates already placed in the sink
so why hasn’t any cash left me?
