I have a blank check in my wallet

it is signed, but otherwise unmarked


It is one of those habits I shouldn't do

knowing that if someone found it,  bad things could happen 


I suppose Mandy might be that sort of someone

she was my waitress tonight at Shoney's 


She's lying next to me now, 

here at Airport Hotel room number 24


She might be the kind of person who would dig through my wallet

early in the morning when I'm fast asleep 


I'm betting against it however, 

knowing how well the sedative usually works  

Risk"y (?), a.

Attended with risk or danger; hazardous.

"A risky matter."

W. Collins.

Generalization are always risky. Lowell.
