My Neighbor


I saw my neighbor today
walking her dog
slowly, past my house.
We chatted for a moment.
Her gait was slow and lopsided,
deliberate and cumbersome.
All gray now.
She rescues dogs
about to be put down
Such a lovely heart.
She's an original owner, like me.
Moved in the same month
in seventy-three.
I remember when her daughter
lived in a drawer,
til the furniture came.
She walked much faster back then.
