Checks & Balances

My mom is a stellar book keeper

She taught me how to reconcile my cheque book

To my bank statement

Reconcile this way, she would say

Instilling a monthly habit

I take pleasure in the balancing

Pouring over my transaction records

Persisting when things just don’t add up

I have saved these little booklets

A record of my financial history

An audit of my life.

The journey from scarcity to abundance.

Free verse, based on Cheque Books.
