supermarket silence

13 May

she scans grams and expiration
with one eye as taxi driver
the other a farmer;
a creation story in reverse.

the swing of milk carton
from fridge to shopping kart
is the lost majesty of an elephant trunk
bypassing tree rings of ego
to earth as an orphan,
this psychic warfare in aisle 8
is a necessary drone.
