I 'm beginning to forget things.

I look at the tiles, hoof-marked
and dog-haired, and say to myself:
"I did hoover that floor today?
 Didn't I?"

I did!

Then she made a dash
for the back hedge
beyond which lay
neighbour's garden shed-
door half-open
Pet rabbit's bob-tail
in the mix.

She came back
tail swinging
hips swaying
feet stamping imprints
on vacuumed tiles.

Or did she?

Or was that yesterday?
Or the day before?
Or last week?
I'm beginning to forget things...
