What is special about down-sizing

is that there are less walls,

or are they smaller?

And also the ceilings, like in that old horror story,

really seem lower, and are getting lower by the minute,

and it actually appears

that all those pictures, once sparse,

less noticeable,

have multiplied,

or gotten larger.

It’s really all relative, I guess.

My cerebral hemispheres

may have atrophied,

and the whole world

looks enormous.
