nothing stolen

someone
broke into
the house

it was
quite easy
really

considering
the already-torn
screen

and the
open, un-barred
windows

they tousled
up a couple
of rooms

made messes
but somehow
took nothing

no real
harm done
except

this now
unsettled
feeling

that we must
be more
careful now

make sure
all the doors
are locked

tuck away
the valuables
properly

and despite
my meditations
on attachment

my assertions
of what i could
live without

i remind myself
things get lost
things get stolen

things
are only
things

there is still
an anxiety
in my belly
