The dust has been building up for, oh…

A few months.

It begins to bother me when I watch TV

Through a film.

And then when I know we are expecting someone

For a visit

I begin to see the cobwebs lurking

In the windows.

A 6-bedroom (13-room) house needs dusting.

 

The dust has been building up for, oh…

A few months.

Wet washcloth in hand, I begin in the family room:

Desk, piano, TV,

And move to our large master bedroom:

Dressers, bed, windows.

I stop at the east window well to converse

With a spider.

 

How do you do? Says I to the

Lovely lady.

Oh, wonderfully! Especially with this sunny place

To live.

And how long have you been in this location?

Oh, a few months.

Why did you choose this place rather than outdoors,

Where you belong?

Oh, my children needed a warm place

To hatch.

CHILDREN?!

 

Swoosh, swish, swash, squish.

The dust has been building up for, oh…

Two days.

Where has that washcloth gone?
