Spring Cleaning: A Poem

Open the fridge and reach for the milk.

The inside of the fridge is tinted dingy grey.

Take out the milk and reach for a cup.

See a rim of dust beneath it.

Look around the room.

The scales fall from my eyes.

Everything is




Pick up a sponge.

Push a broom.

Drag a cloth.

Think about doing it all.

But needed is:

That new window cleaner

A better mop

That swiffer wiffer wonder jet thingy.

Can’t do spring cleaning without that.

Get it next time I go out.

Until then

Dust off the cup

Put the milk back in the dingy fridge

Put the scales back on my eyes

And close the door.
