My shopping trundler
ground its sturdy wheels
under the burdensome load
of elderly reference books
from long ago teaching days.
Its staunch metal frame
sagged in spite of its
regular body building
weighty shopping loads.

With books unloaded at the
charity drop off point for
the second hand book sale
the trundler raised itself to
full height seeming to float
behind me as we left.
