Small Brown Bag

Tucked under her arm
only partially hidden
a small brown bag
like the Drugstore uses.
She didn’t offer
and I didn’t ask,
just an awkward silence.
It was about the size
of a box of tampons
or a pregnancy test
but she’s never hidden
tampons from me before.


  1. I know these small brown bags well. It probably also contains a nail file and a bottle of polish or something equally mundane so that when she bought it, it appeared to be a casual purchase. Thanks for visiting my blog and following!

  2. Holy Mackerel! What is going on here???
