Nabokov Hate Catalogue, 2

(Picking up from last time)
My credit card denied when I had made
Certain they knew that I'd be on a trip;
The faulty drainage in the sink; the lip
Of fat over my waistband when I lean
Forward; the dishes I don't want to clean;
Closets too small for clothing to be hung;
The effortlessly beautiful and young
("In youth is beauty and in beauty youth,"
Is not what Keats said, but it is the truth.);
