I trip on a cardboard box
and at first I think she is worried about me
but she barges past me

bunny, are you ok

which is when I see that water has also spilled
and it looks like a few carrots too

she picks up her stuffed bunny
and cradles him like a newborn
making comforting sounds

I think about the carrots
and how we can’t shop again until next week
but then I hear her singing to the bunny
a made-up song about hopping
so I quietly cut up some cucumber
and feed it to him
doing my best to hum along.
