life, people, you and the purple dog which has nothing to do with any of this–

push in the sides and the front jumps
push at the front and the top leaps

push down the top and it
flattens out.

go for a walk and forget it.
It has forgotten you.

or don’t go for a walk.

and don’t talk.
they won’t listen.

they have forgotten you.

their fronts, sides and tops have
been pushed.

they are flattened.

forget them.
