Conveying

From Look Winter in the Face, a poetry collection published in 2015.

Conveying

She moved the potted plants
one at a time
each one relocated
slightly to the left
wiped the counter
shifted each one back
carefully
The whole row done
She hummed as she worked
I listened.

  1. I can imagine this kind of private, domestic scene. It seems sort of homey, but I imagine the woman feeling satisfaction in a job completed, perhaps day dreaming as she dusts.

  2. I was inspired by watching workers at the grocery store, and it made me realize once again how much satisfaction I get from ordering and cleaning and yard work and so on. I’m a doing kind of person rather than a thinker, and I especially enjoy observing others and figuring out how they do what they do.
