My Day 13 poem, loosely based on the prompt at https://www.napowrimo.net/day-thirteen-8/
National Poetry Writing Month 2020, Day 13
The napowrimo.net prompt for day 13 is to ‘write a non-apology for the things you’ve stolen.’ I approached this from a slightly different angle; I can’t say there was theft involved, but I was definitely on the receiving end of more generosity than was perhaps warranted.

I couldn’t figure out how that had anything to do with the prompt, but I figured I’d follow it and see what happened. I think I sort-of figured out there towards the end.
