First Shift

From the collection Use All Your Eyes to See, published 2020.

First Shift

stepped along to work this morning
nice look
sharp ironed creases
folded into neat corners
fresh and

all for nothing now
wilted and damp
with the effort of getting the job done

the dishtowel
takes a short break
over the oven door handle
shakes out the morning’s wrinkles
mopping its brow.
