Prompt#17, Loss

It is usual for me

to forget things and lose things

no, forget faces and lose memory

no, forget sins and lose patience

no, forget courtsey and lose respect

no, forget the milk on fire and lose my ear-rings while taking the dress off

but all that is usual right?

What is unusual is that

I lost my measure of height and forgot I was half an inch higher

and so I married

a man half inch shorter and thats why
