Thief in our Midst

The audit is null
                                     & void
                                I have nothing
                          yet nothing is up for grabs
                   
             Except in verbatim
                     Word for word
                    Exchange and
                        replace them

I now realize
       I am always looking over
                     my shoulder for a reason

             What do I have that
                 makes me so…   [insert that]
                              I despise thieves
                       though I’ll romance them
     drink back to back &
     wake without a dollar
                  to my name
             hunting for none to replace

     Liquored up |||||| they slipped: a heart
    was the greatest thing they’d ever stole
