The controlling metaphor
went on too long
like a scarf around the world
or a sweater with one sleeve
still in the basket.

See? I stretched it.
Then I gave it up.
It makes me look so uncommitted.

But to other things I am devoted.
Brownies. Chocolate chip cookies. Apple pie.

Every morning the cat expects
a bowl of canned food
before she dashes out the door
for just a minute.
Once she is fed she loses interest.
