I see an old woman with a green hat

wanting a blue hat,

raking leaves and putting them

into cardboard boxes.

I see people comforting each other

with sweaters

and cups of tea,

an old woman putting love

into cardboard boxes,

people raking leaves

to convince themselves


an old woman wanting

what she does not have

or people raking love

or people putting people

into boxes

or putting everything into boxes

is not a sad list.
