Shrinking World

There was a time when
clothes seemed to shrink
but now it's the world growing smaller

steps that lead to the sidewalk
are too high, the distance 

to the curb too far

the weight of a bag 

of groceries, cumbersome
and heavy, 

the height of a cabinet too far
to reach for the slow 
cooker on the top shelf

the mind still expanding, 
still wonder and search
for ideas and conversations,

many of them recollections
of how things used to be
try not to focus on how 

the world is shrinking
and simple things 

have gotten too hard 
to complete.
