Upon My Shoulders

I’ve cleaned my fridge,
countertops shine
my floors are welcoming
my dust depleted for awhile

I was waiting for someone to come by
do it for me
I’d even have paid.
However this morning I looked out
and saw the same day arrive as yesterday…

I knew my desire was not for someone else
to do these things

So I took up cleaning gloves
and started where I wanted
it took some time
all those nooks and crannies
where sesame seeds hide
I found them
and me
cleansed as if I cared for me
what a fuckin practice that is.
