To compare recollection of things with how and where they were

I guess is human nature. You can always log a problem ticket

for things that should be there but aren’t. Dial the hotline number-

 

But how careless or carefree one can be until the audit period drops

like a brick from the height, slipping off a day-wager helper’s hand.

I remember my head missing a brick by an inch.

 

Human skin is thick with layering. Even so, I pricked my skin

to wake me up from this self-made trick, of looking for you in places

where you should have been.

 

I know, I know.

There is no system yet in place to log such issues.

I like how you develop the metaphor, warranty service, and apply it to something personal --

Human skin is thick with layering. Even so, I pricked my skin

to wake me up from this self-made trick, of looking for you in places

where you should have been.

 

I know, I know.

The title caught my attention.
