Missing Marbles

Tuesday night--
Happy Hour.
One hot pink,
patent leather
vintage, rhinestoned clutch.
Left on the bar
at Bartini on twenty-first
next door to the  fondue place.
Contents include:
twenty-seven dollars,
one obviously fake i.d.,
a Yellow Cab business card,
and one Tri-Met bus pass.
one "Blushing Bride" pink lipstick,
a Swiss Army knife,
and two apparently invaluable,
but priceless marbles.
If found:
you can spend the cash,
use the i.d.,
keep the bus pass,
throw away the lipstick,
and sell the knife.
But the marbles...
send my marbles back to me.
