shopping list saturday.....sewing thread x

she dropped the basket with the spools of thread
they scattered under the table, under the chairs,
in improbable corners - one that was orange-red
got inside the glass lamp; a mauve one
deep in the mirror; that gold one -
she never had a spool of gold thread - where did it come from?
she was about to kneel,to pick them up one by one, to tidy up
before opening the door. she had no time. they knocked again.
she stood motionless, helpless, her hands dropped to her sides.
when she remembered to open - no one was there.....
