You wanna piece of me? well here's the plain truth! But, Boy, oh Boy, I do so much thinking while I am doing what I do!
Inspired by Saga's "Serve And Compare."



Confessions Of A Poet At Work

I
clean houses
I am a
scrub lady,
laundress,
wiper of dust,
sweeper, mopper,
a maid if you must

I do dishes
fulfill wishes
for those
who
pay
the price
for a home
that is nice and clean
for a while
I do it with a smile
cause
it pays the bills
it lets me chill
whenever
I am done
I'll drink some wine
lie back so sublime
in a tub
full of soothing
warm
water

and after that...

i often sit
at the computer
in a nook
full of books
and clutter
eating crackers
and peanut butter
while the crumbs
fall
on
the
floor

but I write
and write
some more

while the dust
lies around
this place

waiting for the maid

but

she's overbooked

so I sit in my nook

and look
only
at
this space

with a smile on my face!

You
write poetry
change the world
writing one word
one line, at a time
making this world
nicer
more heart-felt
cleaning will
kill dustbunnies
writing will kill
cold hearts.

i loved this! no matter what you do, you are my dear Kathy, you are a poet. =)
