Nickel and Dimed

Some losses
are five dollar ones -
big fat hurts
that everyone pays
dearly for.
Others are
nickel and dime losses,
little grieflets
gathering in grim corners.
Bits of pain-
the hoped-for friendship
a nonstarter,
a minor injury,
a favorite mug broken.
Too many
nickel and dime losses
add up to real pain.
Please keep the change.
