Directions to the nearest supermarket

Leave the house and take the first right.
Put one foot in front of the other,
stepping into the road every now and then.
Look at the tabby cat next to the dog poo bin
and wonder what it’s planning.
Put one foot in front of the other.
Wave at the stranger walking towards you.
Not really, but imagine being that kind of person.
Put one foot in front of the other.
Remember there’s a sky
that goes through dark and light and wet.
Put one foot in front of the other.
When you see the supermarket, just keep going.
