When you leave the house 
with the shopping list in your
fingers and come back 
with no list and no shopping
your hand cannot quite find 
your polished brass doorknob
reflecting your world in miniature
at the very same moment 
your children 
turn into hunting dogs
watching your every gesture 
and you slim down 
into a single dimension
like a Greyhound dog
running like crazy
against time.
