Wednesday is errand day.
I find my keys in the rose petal bowl,
my wallet is in the carved wooden tray
my blue hat on the door hook.
I cannot find my phone.
I search, curse and research.
Finally, I find it,
in the powder room.
(Who charges a phone
in the powder room?)
There are two text messages
I sent myself with reminders to buy
strawberries and Dawn dish soap.
I would have forgotten them.
As I am backing the car
out of the garage,
I suddenly turn off the car
and hurry back into the house.
and I never go anywhere
