She lost her valise full of diamonds
somewhere in the railroad station.
She had dined on sushi, sashimi
and grilled fingerlings in the club car.
Now, she was nowhere to be seen
after having been arrested for larceny.
Her valise was given to lost and found.
The police thought the hammer and sickles
embroidered on her Etsy Underware
was some kind of espionage joke.
She mistakenly believed her calloused
hands would help get her through the border.
But spackling putty under her fingernails
and her black barking Pit Bull dog
made Guard Patrol Officers suspicious.
She never made it home.
