Downsizing

You start by throwing things out
packing things that will fit
in a smaller place, selling stuff

that won’t, ignoring the birds
because the seed’s run out
not weeding the garden

you won’t see bloom, then
finding a home for the dog
which is almost as tough as

watching your last child accept
a diploma and wave good-bye
get on a plane and leave home.
