POEM
4

We pray the good times roll and what’s dead stays buried.
Mothballs, cake, and bitters in the cabinet,
mudstains on the carpet telltale under the table.
We’re a day ahead of schedule but well-behind on laundry,
can’t tell clean from dirty half the time. 
Self-care comes second when she’s on the table,
think I’m remembering what it’s like to forget.
