Refrigerator Door

Dancer, Rose Horell

and I can’t stop thinking 

about how I’ve gotten so used to doing everything


so when I reached into the fridge

for a dozen eggs for the week

with my right leg out to catch a door that never hit,

I was startled when I looked over my shoulder

to see you holding it.
