     breathe coffee
bacon
lemon pledge
sun through the cobwebbed window
makes dust sparkle
turns wood floor to gold
october cold and dryer steam
bursts through the back door
vacuum’s mechanical heat
smells like
clean
cartoons off
look in that closet
wow! it’s gorgeous, mom, really.
tess? still workin’ on this bathroom?
taking a break, right.
stack up newspaper
mail
CDs
hang sweatshirts
wash dishes
check email
return phone calls
showers all around.
only now
the day begins
